Sacramento Tile Setters Business Manager Pleads Guilty; Sentenced

On October 15, John Zehm, former business manager for the Tile Setters and Finishers Union of Northern California, pleaded guilty in the Superior Court of California, County of Sacramento, to one misdemeanor count of grand theft from the Sacramento-based union. He then was sentenced to 90 days in jail (suspended) and three years of informal probation, and was ordered to pay $300 in fines. In addition, as part of his plea agreement, he already had paid $14,014 in restitution. Zehm had been indicted this June. The actions follow an investigation by the U.S. Labor Department’s Office of Labor-Management Standards.
