A former Missouri fire inspector pleaded guilty in federal court after embezzling $26,000 from a local firefighter union in the town of Gladstone.
Former fire inspector Charles Duddy waived his right to a grand jury in connection to charges of embezzlement and theft of union funds.
The 58-year-old was treasurer of the Gladstone Firefighters IAFF Union Local 3228 from 2012 to April 2016, according to Western District US Attorney Timothy Garrison.
Duddy used the union’s debit card to spend $26,479 on personal property taxes, title loans, groceries and dining.
According to Fox4KC, Duddy has paid $10,000 in restitution, and under his plea agreement, he must pay the remaining balance. In addition to the financial loss, he could face up to five years in prison.
