ALBUQUERQUE WOMAN SENTENCED TO 24 MONTHS IN PRISON

            ALBUQUERQUE – Jackie Herron, 25, of Albuquerque, N.M., was sentenced in federal court today to 24 months in prison on three counts of assault on a federal employee involving the use of a deadly weapon.   

            According to court documents, Herron was involved in a confrontation with postal service workers in a gated, restricted parking lot for employees only.  When postal workers told her to leave, she revved the engine of her automobile and threatened to run them over.  When one of the postal workers went behind her car to take photographs of Herron’s license plate, she pulled out a gun and pointed it at them in a threatening manner.

 

            The Albuquerque office of the United States Postal Inspection Service investigated the case.  Assistant U.S. Attorneys Paul J. Mysliwiec and Eva Mae Fontanez prosecuted the case.
