Diana Frey reports to prison

Aug 6, 2012

A former Cincinnati union president is expected to report to prison Tuesday.

Diana Frey has had just over two months to prepare herself for four years behind bars. The sentence handed down by Judge Susan Dlott in June was for more time than federal guidelines recommended. She called the white-collar crime serious.

Prosecutors say Frey's embezzlement, 2005 to 2011, from Cincinnati Organized and Dedicated Employees was cold, calculating and deliberate. Frey pleaded guilty to stealing 750-thousand dollars. In court she said she will spend the rest of her life trying to make it up to her family and union members and repay the debt. CODE has hired civil attorney John Saxton to locate the missing funds.
