Brothers to be sentenced in Pa. Boeing loan scam
PHILADELPHIA (AP) - February 22, 2010 -- A former Boeing credit union executive and his brother are facing prison time after pleading guilty in a loan kickback scam at the suburban Philadelphia plant.
Anthony Forte Jr. and his brother David are scheduled to be sentenced in federal court in Philadelphia on Monday morning. Both men pleaded guilty in November to taking part in a scam involving the Boeing Helicopters Credit Union.
Prosecutors say Anthony Forte used his job as a credit union vice president to obtain $1,000 kickbacks on $20,000 loans given to unqualified applicants. David Forte was one of several middlemen who steered applicants to his brother.
Anthony Forte is the current president of the United Aerospace Workers Local 1069.
Attorneys for both men say their clients are remorseful.
