Ex-NYPD sergeants union president pleads guilty to defrauding union and its members
Former NYPD Sergeants Benevolent Association President Edward Mullins pleaded guilty to defrauding the union and its members.
The Sergeants Benevolent Association represents about 13,000 active and retired NYPD sergeants, making it the fifth-largest police union in the United States. 
The U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York says Mullins pleaded guilty to one count of wire fraud in connection with "a scheme to steal hundreds of thousands of dollars from the SBA through the submission of fraudulent expense reports."
Mullins used his personal credit card to fund meals and personal luxury purchases, then submitted false and inflated expense reports to the union, representing that his charges were legitimate union expenses. He also inflated the costs of expenses that the union would refund him for and pocket the difference. 
Mullins was charged with fraud last February, following his resignation from the Sergeants Benevolent Association in October of 2021 and his departure from the NYPD in November of 2021 after the FBI raided his home and the union's office. 
Mullins was the president of the union since 2002.
