Illinois Postal Workers President Sentenced for Embezzlement

On December 18, Lonzell Moore, former president of American Postal Workers Union Local 1730, was sentenced in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois to three years of probation and 200 hours of community service for embezzling $18,857 in funds from the Des Plaines-based union.
