Toledo Man Charged With Theft Of Mail By A Postal Employee

Steven M. Dettelbach, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio, today announced that an information was filed against Deldre L. Jordan, age 40, of Toledo, Ohio. The charge relates to theft of mail by a postal employee beginning on or about January 2012 and continuing to March 23, 2012.

If convicted, defendant’s sentence will be determined by the Court after review of factors unique to each case, including the defendant’s prior criminal record, if any, the defendant’s role in the offense and the characteristics of the violation. In all cases, the sentence will not exceed the statutory maximum and in most cases it will be less than the maximum.

The investigating agency in this case is the Office of Inspector General, United States Postal Service. The case is being handled by Assistant United States Attorney Angelita Cruz Bridges.

An information is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt. The burden of proof is always on the government to prove a defendant guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
