CWA Houston Local Employees Sentenced for Embezzlement

Beverly Davis and Evelyn Smith stole together. And now they’ve been sentenced together. On July 21, Davis and Smith, each a former employee of Communications Workers of America Local 6222, were sentenced in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas to three years of probation for their roles in an embezzlement scheme that netted them more than $135,000 during 2010-17 from the Houston union, which represents AT&T employees. In addition, Davis will have to pay $85,536.77 in restitution, while Smith will have to pay $50,967.76. Grand total: $136,504.53. The pair had pleaded guilty last December following an investigation by the U.S. Labor Department’s Office of Labor-Management Standards.
