Postal workers plead guilty to throwing mail away

 

(WWBT) -Two U.S. Postal service workers in the Richmond area have pleaded guilty to throwing away mail that was supposed to be delivered.

According to U.S. District Court documents, on Jan. 4, Robert C. Chamberlain and Donna M. Smith discarded mail given to them by the U.S. Postal Service. USPS confirms they both worked for the Genito Post Office.

On March 1, the pair pleaded guilty to obstructing mail delivery, were given 6 months probation and ordered to pay a $250 fine by August 3, 2018.

“What’s to prevent someone from doing the same thing or continuing to do the same thing?” said Heather Wrenn, who lives in the Deer Run community. “A $250 fine?”
