Ex-UAW President Dennis Williams Gets 21 Months In Prison

The former president of the United Auto Workers (UAW) union, Dennis Williams, has been sentenced to 21 months in prison due to his role in a corruption scandal.

Prosecutors asserted that Williams took advantage of his position within the union and lived a life far removed from the members that he was representing. In September 2020, the 68-year-old pleaded guilty to a charge of conspiracy to embezzle union funds and earlier this week was sentenced to 21 months in prison and ordered to pay a $10,000 fine and restitution to the UAW totaling $132,000, the Detroit Free Press reports.
