Former Broward Teachers Union President Pat Santeramo was convicted Wednesday of multiple corruption charges.
The one-time labor leader was found guilty of grand theft, money laundering, two counts of organized scheme to defraud and three counts of violating campaign contribution laws. The jury found him not guilty of misusing the gas card issued to him by the union.
“We are profoundly disappointed in the jury’s verdict,” said defense lawyer Benedict Kuehne. “Mr. Santeramo has spent a lifetime serving the cause of public education in Broward County and representing its teachers.”
