Disgraced city carpenters union boss Michael Forde will serve his 11-year prison sentence in West Virginia after a judge denied his plea to stay close to home.

The former District Council of Carpenters chief, who pleaded guilty to racketeering charges in July, asked to be jailed at the federal prison in Otisville, N.Y., or in Massachussetts, New Jersey or Pennsylvania so his elderly parents could visit.

But Federal Judge Victor Marrero said it would be "imprudent to intervene" in the Bureau of Prisons decision to incarcerate Forde at a medium-security lockup in a rural backwater about 450 miles from Forde's Woodside, Queens, home.

(John's note: Fordes surrender date is February 7.)

I would ask that if you would like to leave a comment that you think of Local 157 Blogspot as your online meeting hall and that you wouldn’t say anything on this site that you wouldn’t, say at a union meeting. Constructive criticism is welcome, as we all benefit from such advice. Obnoxious comments are not welcome.
