A former treasurer for the Gladstone, Missouri firefighters union pleaded guilty in federal court Tuesday to embezzling more than $26,000 from the union. Charles Duddy, 58, of Platte City, Missouri, waived his right to a grand jury and pleaded guilty to information that charges him with the embezzlement and theft of union funds. According to a news release from the United States Attorney’s Office Western District of Missouri, Duddy was the treasurer of the Gladstone Firefighters IAFF Union Local 3228 from 2012 through April 2016. As treasurer, Duddy had access to Local 3228’s debit card and was authorized to use the debit card only for Local 3228 expenses.
