On September 13, Kevin Threat, former president of National Association of Government Employees (NAGE) Local R3-84, was sentenced in U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland to 60 days of home detention and five years of probation, and ordered to pay restitution in the amount of $15,505 for embezzling funds from the Alexandria, Va.-based union. Threat is a Maryland resident, hence the reason for the case prosecuted in that state. He had been charged early in March and pleaded guilty later that month. NAGE is an affiliate of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU). The actions follow an investigation by the Labor Department’s Office of Labor-Management Standards and Office of Inspector General.
