WASHINGTON (AP) - A postal employee who pleaded guilty to attempting to steal mail with checks is set to be sentenced.
Lisa Hunter was arrested in June after a police officer working for the postal service saw her attempting to leave a post office mail processing center in Washington with a cart full of mail addressed to two charities that contained checks and cash.
She pleaded guilty in September to a charge of obstruction of the mail, which carries a maximum sentence of six months in jail and a fine.
In court documents, Hunter's attorney and prosecutors both argue she should get probation when a judge sentences her Friday.
