Man Who Stole From Union Sentenced

A man who stole more than $6,000 from his union has been sentenced in federal court to two years’ probation and, although he must pay restitution, will not do any jail time.

46-year-old Robert Vargeson of Coudersport falsified records to hide the fact that he embezzled $6,013 from the Communication Workers of America Local 88329 while he was the union’s treasurer in 2012 and 2013.

Vargeson pleaded guilty in April.
