A former financial secretary for the United Steelworkers Local 6904 of Little Rock was ordered Wednesday to repay $43,274.97 that she admitted embezzling from the labor union in 2015.
U.S. District Judge D. Price Marshall Jr. also ordered Pamela Noble to serve five years' probation, but he didn't impose prison time.
She pleaded guilty Feb. 13 to embezzlement of union assets, for which she faced up to five years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000 under federal statutes.
In a judgment filed Thursday, Marshall said the restitution consists of $33,274.97 to the union itself, and only after that debt is paid will she owe another $10,000 to Zurich American Insurance Co. of Chicago, which covered that much of the theft.
Court documents show Noble was the union's financial secretary from January 2015 until October 2015.
