DETROIT (AP) — Prosecutors are seeking a two-year prison sentence for a former president of the United Auto Workers.
The government says Dennis Williams led “two lives,” as a leader of a blue-collar union who also had a taste for premium champagne and California villas.
Williams pleaded guilty last year to an embezzlement scheme that turned union dues into a pot of cash for golf, lodging and fancy meals.
Williams will be sentenced May 11.
Williams has tried to portray himself as a reluctant participant.
But the government says he devised ways to conceal the spending.
Williams is seeking a prison sentence of a year and a day, which would qualify him for good behavior credits.
