Former Union Officer Charged with Embezzling over $280,000 in Union Funds

Portland, Maine: Acting United States Attorney Richard W. Murphy announced today that Ryan Jones, 34, of Bath, Maine was indicted yesterday by a federal grand jury for embezzling union funds.

The indictment charges Jones with embezzling over $280,000 from the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers, Local Lodge S6, during a period when he served as an officer of that union.

If convicted, Jones faces up to five years in prison, three years of supervised release, a $10,000 fine and restitution.

The investigation was conducted by the U.S. Department of Labor, Office of Labor-Management Standards and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

An indictment is merely an accusation, and a defendant is presumed innocent unless proven guilty in a court of law.
