PITTSBURGH – A Braddock woman has been indicted by a federal grand jury in Pittsburgh on charges of theft of mail and destruction of letter/mail boxes, United States Attorney David J. Hickton announced today.

The 33-count indictment named Carolyne Korotko, aka Carolyne Elizabeth Golosky, 40, of Braddock, Pa., as the sole defendant.

According to the indictment, from March 2013, through December 2013, Korotko forcibly opened multiple mail boxes and stole the mail from victims in the Shadyside and Southside sections of Pittsburgh.

The law provides for a maximum total sentence of not more than 133 years in prison, a fine of $8,250,000, or both. Under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, the actual sentence imposed would be based upon the seriousness of the offenses and the prior criminal history, if any, of the defendant.

Assistant United States Attorney Gregory C. Melucci is prosecuting this case on behalf of the government.

The United States Postal Inspection Service conducted the investigation leading to the indictment in this case.

An indictment is an accusation. The defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
