A former secretary treasurer of a United Steelworkers local in Pennsylvania was sentenced to three years’ probation April 11 for embezzlement and theft of labor union assets, federal prosecutors announced.

The first six months of Marianne Rodacy’s sentence will be served on home detention, and she will be barred from working for a union for 13 years, prosecutors said.

Rodacy served as the secretary treasurer for Local 10-53-G. From Oct. 1, 2012, to June 24, 2015, she took $21,540 in unions funds for personal use, prosecutors said. She pleaded guilty in 2017.

The attorney for Rodacy, David N. Lint of France, Lint & Associates P.C. in Charleroi, Pa., didn’t respond to Bloomberg Law’s request for comment.
