Akron Firefighters Under Fire for Stealing Money & Making A PORNO!!

It’s a sad day in the news for the Akron Fire Fighters.  Looks like the FORMER treasurer of the Akron Fire Department was sentenced for stealing money from the union AND also, two firefighters have been suspended for watching PORN.

The Akron firefighter who stole hundreds of thousands of dollars from his union to live a lavish lifestyle is going to state prison.  Joseph Ruhlin, 41, was sentenced today (6-18-18) in Summit County Common Pleas Court to two years in prison and he was also ordered to repay the $385,000 he stole from Akron Fire Fighters Local 330 over several years.  Ruhlin was immediately placed in handcuffs and led out of the courtroom as family members embraced and cried out.

The family wrote letters and made statements to try to plead with the Judge about giving him any prison time.  They all spoke about how “trustworthy” “generous” and family oriented he was.  He was sentenced to two years on each charge, but the time will be served concurrently.  The judge imposed no fine.    But Judge Alison Breaux, before imposing the sentence, said she struggled to reconcile how family and friends described Ruhlin as generous, caring and trustworthy while at the same time he betrayed colleagues through “years of deception” and “years of fraudulent behavior.”  She told Ruhlin that he lived a double life.  “You did a pretty good job of it because you fooled everybody,” Breaux said.  Assistant Prosecutor Greg Peacock described Ruhlin as a con artist whose motive was greed.  For the full story, please visit https://www.ohio.com/akron/news/local/former-treasurer-of-akron-firefighters-union-going-to-prison.
