    Union officials convicted - By Eric Lacy, The Detroit News
    A federal jury on Monday convicted the head of the Michigan Regional Council of Carpenters and the former president of the union on federal corruption charges in U.S. District Court.

    Walter Ralph Mabry, the group's current executive secretary-treasurer, was accused of conspiring to receive more than $120,000 in "extraordinary discounts" for work on his Grosse Pointe Park home from several companies.

    Anthony Michael, of Macomb Township, was president and executive director of the carpenters union at the time the work was done on Mabry's house and allegedly met with contractors to arrange discounted work.
