On October 30, Jackie Nutter, former secretary-treasurer of United Steelworkers Local 15485, pleaded guilty in the Greene County, Missouri Circuit Court to one count of theft of $12,284 of funds from the Springfield-based union.  She then was sentenced to five years (suspended) in prison and five years of probation.  Nutter, who already had paid full restitution, had been charged with theft in September 2014.  The actions follow an investigation by the U.S. Labor Department’s Office of Labor-Management Standards.
