Gary Jones, the newly-elected President of the United Auto Workers (UAW), addresses the 37th UAW Constitutional Convention June14, 2018 at Cobo Center in Detroit, Michigan.
Gary Jones is the second UAW president to be sentenced as part of a multiyear corruption probe into the prominent American labor union.
His sentencing is among the last in the multiyear corruption probe, which has tarnished the union's reputation, created mistrust among its members and led to federal oversight of the UAW.
During the hearing, Jones spoke quickly and somewhat emotionally as he apologized to the court, his family and UAW members.
"I failed [my family], and I failed the UAW," he said before asking and pleading the judge for his mercy in sentencing.
