LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - An April trial has been scheduled for a former Nebraska union official accused of embezzling nearly $103,000.

The Lincoln Journal Star says (https://bit.ly/1kgOMTq ) Ray Lineweber, of Lincoln, faces 29 counts on charges of embezzlement, mail fraud and falsifying union records.

Prosecutors say the Lineweber stole the money from the United Transportation Union between January 2008 and May 2012, when he was legislative director for the union’s Nebraska State Legislative Board 30. The federal indictment says Lineweber misled the union in expense reports requesting reimbursement for food, entertainment, travel and other expenses.

The 66-year-old Lineweber and his attorney have declined to comment.

The trial is scheduled to begin April 7.
