A former New Jersey union official has admitted accepting kickbacks from a company he hired to install electronic equipment at the union's offices.

Dennis J. Giblin of Jersey City pleaded guilty Monday in federal court in Newark to receiving kickbacks and embezzlement.

Giblin was administrator of the Local 68 Education Fund, sponsored by Local 68 of the International Union of Operating Engineers.

Prosecutors say the company, which was not named, installed more than $10,000 worth of electronic equipment for free at Giblin's home after he hired the firm to install audio-visual systems for the education fund.

Giblin faces a maximum prison term of eight years, but the actual sentence is likely to be lighter under federal sentencing guidelines.
