Rufino Sanchez, a former FAA assistant controller at New York Center, was sentenced in a New York District Court on February 14 to four years probation and six months of home detention for theft of union funds and falsification of records. Sanchez, a 36-year FAA employee, once served as president for the Local R-310 branch of the National Association of Government Employees, a position that gave him unfettered access to union funds. Sanchez used union money to cover personal expenses and also filed false reports to the U.S. Labor Department about the union’s finances. Additionally, he was ordered pay $18,765 in restitution and to forfeit $18,765.
