On December 12, Michael Evans, ex-president of American Federation of Government Employees Local 1699, was sentenced in U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania to two years of probation and 50 hours of community service for conspiracy to commit bank fraud against the Wilkes-Barre union. He also was ordered to pay $65,775 in restitution and a $100 special assessment. Evans had pleaded guilty in September after being charged in July. One day later, on December 13, former union treasurer William Uggiano was sentenced to two years of probation plus 50 hours of community service, and ordered to pay $7,350 in restitution and a $100 special assessment, for the same offense. The actions follow a probe by the U.S. Labor Department’s Office of Labor-Management Standards and Office of Inspector General.
