Woman sentenced for theft

A Kalamazoo woman was sentenced to three months in jail and two years of probation for her role in the theft of money from the UAW Local 2093 account.

Nearly $80,000 in funds from the Three Rivers-based Local 2093 was stolen by Jacquelyn Copper, a six-year member of the UAW board. She pled guilty over the summer to a charge of larceny and was sentenced last week by St. Joseph County Circuit Court Judge Paul Stutesman.

Court officials said Copper has already paid back a portion of the money and her jail time may be waived if she is able to make full restitution in a timely manner.

Copper, a Kalamazoo resident, was an employee at American Axle for about 12 years.
