A union boss for IBEW Local 98 and a Councilman for the city of Philadelphia, you might think that Robert Henon would be an upstanding citizen. But after a trial by jury, he was found guilty of numerous serious charges including wire fraud, bribery, and more. Now, he must serve time in prison. The sentencing included 42 months of prison time, three years of supervised release, and being forced to pay a grand total of $258,948.
