Former USPS mail carrier sentenced to home confinement, probation after stealing cash, gift cards

FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA. (WSVN) – A judge delivered their punishment to a South Florida mail carrier after she admitted to stealing gift cards and cash, but the neighbors who once trusted her are not happy with her sentence, as Brian Entin found out in court.

Brian Entin: “Ms. Coleman, is there anything you want to say to the victims?”

Coleen Coleman stayed silent.

Brian Entin: “Are you sorry for what you did, Ms. Coleman?”

The disgraced USPS mail carrier walked out of federal court in Fort Lauderdale after her sentencing. She will not go to prison.

Instead, she was sentenced to five years probation and three months home confinement.

Mike McEntee, neighbor: “I think they were very lenient on her. I don’t think they gave her enough for what happened.”

Her victims appeared in court Thursday and hoped for a tougher sentence after Coleman admitted to stealing their mail.
