Union Man Gets 46 Months For Embezzelment

A Mississippi man has been sentenced to nearly four years in prison for embezzling union funds. The U.S. Attorney’s Office says U.S. District Judge Sharion Aycock sentenced 66-year-old Danny Woodcock, of Caledonia, on Thursday to serve 46 months in prison and ordered him to pay $519,963 in restitution to the Communication Workers of America Local 83770. Woodcock served as president of the union for about 15 years until his removal in October 2016.
