Theater Workers Union Official Sentenced for Embezzlement

    ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — An Anchorage woman who embezzled $193,000 from a theater workers union has been sentenced to 14 months in prison.

    U.S. Attorney Bryan Schroder in a release says 63-year-old Anne Reddig also was ordered Tuesday to pay nearly $140,000 in restitution for theft from the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees.

    Reddig pleaded guilty Sept. 25 to embezzlement of assets by a labor organization officer.

    Reddig from March 2007 to September 2014 worked as the union's secretary-treasurer.

    Prosecutors say she transferred money from union accounts to personal accounts, forged the signature of a union officer on checks she wrote for her own benefit, used ATM machines to withdraw cash from union accounts and bought retail items using a union debit card.
