NEW YORK (AP) - A former union leader is accused of stealing about $48,000 of members’ money and spending some of it at OTB betting sites.

According to an indictment announced Tuesday, John Earvin put the money into a secret bank account that only he had access to.

According to the Daily News (https://nydn.us/1BP1CNu ), Manhattan federal prosecutors say Earvin withdrew money from the account on at least 18 occasions using cash machines at OTBs throughout the state.

Earvin was head of a small union that handles summonses for fare evasion and vandalism.

He faces wire fraud charges.

It wasn’t immediately known if he had a lawyer.
