PITTSBURGH, Pa. ‑ A resident of Hampton Township has been indicted by a federal grand jury in Pittsburgh on charges of embezzlement and theft of labor union assets, United States Attorney David J. Hickton announced today.

The one‑count indictment named Jennine M. Prince, 41, as the sole defendant.

The law provides for a maximum total sentence of five years in prison, a fine of $250,000, or both.  Under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, the actual sentence imposed would be based upon the seriousness of the offenses and the prior criminal history, if any, of the defendant.
