BOSTON (WHDH) — Former State Police Association of Massachusetts President Dana Pullman is to be tried on fraud charges as she is accused of accepting kickbacks from former union lobbyist Anne Lynch.
Pullman, 61, and Lynch, 71, face racketeering, fraud, obstruction of justice and tax crimes charges. Pullman is also accused of using union funds for personal expenses, gifts, meals and a Miami vacation.
For six years, Pullman headed SPAM, which consisted of more than 1,500 soldiers and sergeants. Lynch’s lobbying form during this period represented SPAM in exchange for monthly advance payments. Pullman resigned as president in 2018.
Pullman was arrested by FBI agents at his Worcester home on August 21, 2019. Both Pullman and Lynch were charged on September 19, 2019 and each face up to 20 years in prison.
