    DC Corrections Officer Stole Thousands From Union for New York Trip, Broadway Show: DOJ

    December 21, 2022 // A D.C. corrections officer was arrested Monday and charged with embezzling tens of thousands of dollars from the union that represents officers with the D.C. Department of Corrections, and authorities say he used some of the money for a trip to New York City. Andra Parker, 64, had access to the D.C. Department of Corrections Labor Committee's bank accounts when he was chairman of the union from June 2018 to May 2019 and stole thousands from the organization during that time, the Federal Bureau of Investigation stated in charging documents filed in federal court. Parker, of Capitol Heights, Maryland, spent $7,000 on a trip to New York City for himself and his friends, charging documents say. The trip included $4,000 on rooms and expenses at a Times Square hotel, more than $370 on a New York Knicks game and $616 on "Summer: The Donna Summer Musical," the U.S. Department of Justice said in a release.
