ALBANY, N.Y. – A Hoosick Falls man was sentenced on Wednesday morning following a guilty plea to a grand larceny charge.

According to DA David Soares, Steven Green, 49, was sentenced to one to three years in State Prison. In January, he pleaded guilty to third degree grand larceny, a felony.

While president of the Amalgamate Transit Union, Green stole $3,863 from the pension fund account and $19,219.18 in union funds such as dues and vending machine payments. The thefts occurred between September 1, 2011 and August 2, 2012.

Green was able to commit the crime by depositing union funds into an unauthorized union bank account which was depleted by August 2, 2012.   

The theft totaled $23,082.18 according to Soares,

Green has reimbursed the union for the $3,863 stolen pension fund money. Bank records show that at least $3,000 of that came from the unauthorized union bank account. Green has been ordered to pay restitution in the amount of $22,540.61.
