On September 5, Wayne Boudoin, former president of Security, Police and Fire Professionals of America Local 709, was sentenced in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana to two years of probation, including six months of home confinement, for embezzling funds from the Houma, La. union over a more than seven-year period. He also was ordered to pay restitution in the amount of $16,398. Boudoin previously had made $20,988 in restitution. He had pleaded guilty in May after being charged in April. The actions follow a probe by the U.S. Labor Department’s Office of Labor-Management Standards.
