Ex-union president sentenced to 30 days

WARREN – The former president of the Warren Secretarial Association on Monday was sentenced to 30 days in jail for stealing thousands of dollars from the union.

Susan Manusakis, 54, of Youngstown, was also ordered to serve five years of probation upon her release from the Trumbull County Jail and to pay $24,749 in restitution.

In August, she pleaded guilty to felony charges of grand theft and forgery, admitting she stole the money from the union from March 2012 through January 2015.

Prosecutors said Manusakis signed multiple checks during that time and deposited them into her account.
