A former top United Steelworkers official will spend two years on probation and pay a $2,000 fine for embezzling union funds, U.S. District Judge Mark Hornak ruled Tuesday.

Charles Rocha, 44, of Cranberry pleaded guilty in March. From January 2008 through June 2009 he misused a union credit card and falsified semi-monthly mileage vouchers, prosecutors say.

Rocha, the union's former political director, repaid the union the $6,971.19 he stole, according to court documents.
