Which California Union Boss was sentenced to 12 Years in Prison in January?

On January 5th, 2021, John S. Romero was convicted of several counts. He was the president of United Industrial Service Workers of America (UISWA) in Colton, California. As a result of crimes consisting of theft and conspiracy, he will serve a sentence of 12 years in prison. After he gets out, he will then have to serve 3 years of supervised release. This is just another example of the corruption and money-grabbing that goes on behind many forced-unionism quarters.

From the Department of Labor:

“He was ordered to pay a $1,400 special assessment. Romero was also ordered to pay restitution in an amount to be determined at a later hearing. On February 12, 2020, after a six-day trial, a jury found Romero guilty of one count of conspiracy (18. U.S.C. 371), 12 counts of theft of approximately $800,000 in connection with health care (18 U.S.C. 669), and one count of filing a false financial report with the Department of Labor, in which he failed to properly report the existence of more than $100,000 in receipts and disbursements (18 U.S.C. 1001).”
