HARRISBURG – The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced that Steven Williams, age 48, of York, Pennsylvania, was sentenced on July 28, 2020, to 30 months’ imprisonment followed by three years of supervised release, by Chief District Court Judge John E.

According to United States Attorney David J. Freed, Williams previously pleaded guilty to conspiring with other individuals to purchase thousands of dollars’ worth of postage stamps from post offices in the Middle District of Pennsylvania and elsewhere.

The case was investigated by the United States Postal Inspection Service and the Northeastern Regional Police Department. Assistant U.S. Attorney Carlo D. Marchioli prosecuted the case.
