Buffalo, N.Y. -- U.S. Attorney William J. Hochul, Jr. announced today that Brian Jaszczak, 24, of Buffalo, NY, pleaded guilty before U.S. Magistrate Judge Jeremiah J. McCarthy, to a misdemeanor charge of obstruction of the mails. The charge carries a maximum penalty of six months in prison, a fine of $5,000, or both.

The plea is the culmination of an investigation on the part of Special Agents of the United States Postal Service, Office of the Inspector General, under the direction of Monica Weyler.

Sentencing is scheduled for July 15, 2015 at 11:00 a.m. before Judge McCarthy.
