On August 12, Frank Juarez, former president of American Postal Workers Union Local 6768, was sentenced in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas to three years of probation, of which 180 days must be served in home detention, for embezzling funds from the Plano union. He also was ordered to pay $21,151 in restitution and a $100 assessment. Juarez had been charged in February. No information is available as to a guilty plea. The actions follow an investigation by the U.S. Labor Department’s Office of Labor-Management Standards.
