TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - A former secretary-treasurer of a railroad union was ordered to pay $17,000 in restitution and serve two years of supervised release for embezzling union funds.

Federal prosecutors announced Monday that 63-year-old Dale T. Hull, of Herington, Kansas, pleaded guilty to one count of embezzling union funds. He took the money while he was secretary-treasurer of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen, Division 261. That union represents Union Pacific Railroad employees who work in Herington and Salina.

Hull admitted that starting in 2008, he made unauthorized account transfers from the union’s account to his personal checking account. He also filed reports to the U.S. Department of Labor in which he understated his earnings.
