United Teachers of Dade will eventually receive more than $1 million in an agreement with former President Pat L. Tornillo Jr., whom officials believe bilked more than $3 million from the Miami union’s coffers.

Mr. Tornillo, who is serving a 27-month prison sentence under a plea bargain, and his wife, Donna, agreed to transfer ownership of their life-insurance policies to UTD, an affiliate of the American Federation of Teachers. Donna Tornillo was not charged in the federal case.

“The final chapter has been written for UTD regarding Pat Tornillo,” current President Karen Aronowitz said in a statement. “It is time to look ahead to where we are going and to put behind us the difficulties of the past.”
