Judge, Oliver W. Wanger, sentenced Alan L. Axt, ex-vice president of the United Food & Commercial Local 1288, to 18 months in prison for embezzling about $282,300 from the institution based in Fresno, Cal. Axt pled for a lighter term based on a claim of "extreme remorse."
...
Axt told Wanger before sentencing, "You can't imagine the hurt I've caused so many people ... I've apologized to so many people."
...
Axt pled guilty Sept. 4 to charges that he stole the money between Mar. 1, 1999, and Nov. 30, 2000, while he was vice president of member services for the institution.His lawyer, David Gottlieb, said Axt has repaid about $50,000 of the money.
...
Insurance has paid another $50,000, and Wanger ordered Axt to make restitution of a remaining $182,335.
...
So in other words, Axt got away with $47,665.
Asst. U.S. Atty.Jonathan B. Conklin, one of the prosecutors on the case, said more than $100,000 of the missing money is unaccounted for and Axt said he is at a loss to explain it."I wish I knew where it all went to," Axt said, " ...It didn't go to a Swiss bank."Axt blames his crimes on problems with a new manager of the credit union, where he had worked for 15 years, but the details were not reported.Axt is currently working in Bakersfield.
