ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A 44-year-old former labor union official from Albuquerque has pleaded guilty to embezzlement.

Leonard Bridge II on Tuesday pleaded guilty to one count of a 20-count indictment.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office says a plea agreement calls for both sides in the case to recommend that Bridge be sentenced to one to two years in prison.

He was employed as the business manager of the Local 131 of the International Union of Elevator Constructors from January 2009 and November 2011, and the plea agreement calls for him to pay nearly $141,000 in restitution to the union.
