Business agent accused of stealing union money



Published: Thu, August 8, 2002 @ 12:00 a.m.



PITTSBURGH, Pa. -- John L. Dorrier Jr. of Butler has been indicted in federal court on charges of stealing money from his labor union.

Dorrier was a business agent for Operating Engineers Local 66, with headquarters in Monroeville. He is accused of falsifying 976 picket expense vouchers in the names of union members and others who hadn't provided any picket services.

The union issued 949 payment checks based on those vouchers and Dorrier picked up those checks in person and forged and cashed them, the indictment said.

He is accused of diverting more than $51,000 in union funds to his own use in this manner between 1992 and November 1998.

He is charged with embezzlement from a labor union, making a forged security, bank fraud and interfering with the administration of the Internal Revenue laws.

He could face a prison sentence of up to 208 years and a fine of more than $6.7 million, said Paul E. Hull, assistant U.S. Attorney.
