Former Republic Windows CEO Richard Gillman to accept plea deal

Richard Gillman, the former owner of Republic Windows and doors who shuttered the company illegally and without warning back in 2008, will accept a plea deal later this week.

Gillman's plea is expected Thursday, five years to the day since Republic was closed, resulting in hundreds of lost jobs and a six-day worker occupation of the facility.

Gillman is accused of stealing more than $10 million from the company.
