Letter Carriers Treasurer in Hawaii Sentenced for Embezzlement, Coverup

by Carl Horowitz NLPC, 10/11/2012

On September 17, David Ing, former treasurer of National Association of Letter Carriers Branch 860, was sentenced in U.S. District Court for the District of Hawaii to four months in prison and three years of supervised release for embezzling funds from the Honolulu-based union and concealing the thefts on union financial reporting forms. Having previously paid $79,291.24 in restitution, he was ordered to pay a $10,000 fine and a $200 special assessment, and undergo treatment for gambling addiction. Ing pled guilty in May to embezzling $83,293.19. The guilty plea and sentencing follow a joint probe by the IRS' Criminal Investigation Division and the Labor Department's Office of Labor-Management Standards.

Chalk up another union corruption case to gambling.
