- ERIC D. LAWRENCE, DETROIT FREE PRESS

Fiat Chrysler Automobile­s, now part of Stellantis, has pleaded guilty in a long-running corruption probe, formally admitting Monday that it paid more than $3.5 million in personal expenses for senior UAW officials.

As part of its guilty plea via Zoom in U.S. District Court in Detroit, the company agreed to pay $30 million and submit to an independen­t compliance monitor for three years. Sentencing was set for June 21.

The scandal netted 15 conviction­s, including against two former UAW presidents, and led to a consent decree for the union as well.
