Paul Wyatt believes he’s innocent. But his prospects for acquittal don’t look good. On May 12, Wyatt, formerly president and business manager of the Sioux Falls, South Dakota-based Stage and Picture Operators Local 220, pleaded not guilty in federal court after being charged with embezzling about $35,000 from the union, an affiliate of the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees (IATSE). Prosecutors allege the thefts occurred during January 2008-August 2009. Wyatt, 48, a resident of Sioux Falls, was released on bond. If convicted, he faces up to five years in prison.
