Toledo Woman Charged With Filing False Report

Steven M. Dettelbach, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio, today announced that a criminal information was filed against Rene Opre, age 55, of Toledo, Ohio. 

The charges relate to filing a false report on behalf of Workers United SEIU, Local Union 323 with the U.S. Department of Labor. 

If convicted, the defendant’s sentence will be determined by the court after reviewing factors unique to this case, including the defendant’s prior criminal record, if any, the defendant’s role in the offense and the characteristics of the violation.  In all cases the sentence will not exceed the statutory maximum and in most cases it will be less than the maximum.

The investigating agency in this case is the Office of Labor-Management Standards, U.S. Department of Labor, Cleveland, Ohio.  The case is being handled by Assistant United States Attorney Gene Crawford.

An information is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt.  Defendants are entitled to a fair trial in which it will be the government’s burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
