Indiana firefighter gets probation in union embezzlement 
A Gary firefighter who embezzled more than $30,000 from the union he managed the finances for was sentenced Tuesday in federal court to three years of probation. After entering a plea deal, John T. Springer, 54, pleaded guilty in April to three counts of wire fraud from his time as the secretary-treasurer for Gary Professional Firefighters Association Local 359. From 2008 through 2012, Springer took money for personal expenses, including $12,742 for his child's tuition at a private school in Hammond.
