Dougherty, and others, are accused of having embezzled more than $650,000 from electrician's union IBEW Local 98.
PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- The jury will continue its deliberations on Wednesday in the trial of former labor leader John "Johnny Doc" Dougherty.
Dougherty and others are accused of having embezzled more than $650,000 from the electrician's union IBEW Local 98 between 2010 and 2016.
Federal prosecutors allege that Dougherty spent the money on home renovations, meals, concerts, and groceries for himself, his family, and friends.
Dougherty, 63, has denied the allegations and expressed confidence in acquittal on the more than 90 counts that include conspiracy, embezzlement, wire and tax fraud, and falsification of union records.
Defense attorneys portrayed him as a hardworking leader trying to account for his expenses while working around the clock for union members.
The union's former president, Brian Burrows, is also standing trial in the federal case.
In 2021, Dougherty was convicted on bribery charges in a separate trial, along with former city councilmember Bobby Henon.
