Postal Worker Behind Bars
A former United States Postal Service Employee has been sentenced to six months in prison for destroying and delaying the delivery of mail.
U.S. Chief Judge Joseph H. McKinley also ordered 34-year-old William “Brent” Morse of Dawson Springs to pay $14,808.01 for losses suffered by residents and a local bank and for losses to two businesses which attempted to mail commercial circulars.
Morse admitted from March 2011 until March 30, 2013 he destroyed at least 1,000 pieces of mail and stored at least 44,900 pieces of mail at his deceased mother's home and at rented storage facilities in Dawson Springs. The majority of the mail was meant for Dawson Springs. The recovered mail has since been delivered.
