3rd person gets prison in shooting of Texas mail carrier

A San Antonio man must serve seven years in federal prison for his role in the 2017 shooting and robbery of a South Texas mail carrier.

Piper Lee was sentenced Thursday in San Antonio over the attack on a Spring Branch mail carrier and theft of her personal truck. The 42-year-old Lee in July pleaded guilty to possession of stolen mail and aiding and abetting the assault of a federal officer.

Prosecutors say Bradley Ahearn was the gunman. Ahearn and Sarah Richford both received 20-year prison terms after pleading guilty to carjacking and robbery-related counts.

The victim was shot in both legs during the February 2017 attack.
