Portland, Maine: United States Attorney Thomas E. Delahanty II announced that United States District Court Judge D. Brock Hornby sentenced Carol L. Carter, 58, of Parsonsfield, Maine to 2 years’ probation and $2,713.08 worth of restitution for Misappropriation of Postal funds.
According to court documents, between April and September of 2014, while working as a postmaster relief in the East Parsonsfield Post Office, Carol L. Carter stole $2,713.08 worth of postal funds by selling money orders, pocketing the cash, and either not reporting the sale of the money orders until she could cover the shortfall with a subsequent sale or not reporting the sale at all.
When interviewed, Carter admitted selling the money orders without reporting their sale and using the money to pay personal expenses.
The case was investigated by the United States Postal Service Office of Inspector General.
