OAKLAND — A former United States Postal Service clerk has been sentenced to probation for using access to mail to steal around $800, court records show.
Terrence Langston was indicted on two mail theft counts back in June. In a hearing last October, he pleaded guilty to one of the counts. His three-year probation sentence was handed down on Monday.
While working at an Antioch post office in 2017, Langston stole two credit cards from Capitol One and Barclaycard, and used them to make $839 in withdrawals and purchases, according to prosecutors.
The defense attorney wrote Langston “has a demonstrable record of pursuing his goals,” and came clean when federal agents interviewed him about the mail theft. Langston is a teaching assistant at UC Berkeley and volunteers at the Fillmore Heritage Center in San Francisco, a defense memo says.
