U.S. District Judge Henry C. Morgan Jr. does not like mail theft.
It is a serious crime, he said Monday to a former Norfolk letter carrier now in trouble with the law. And it can have far reaching impacts on those who rely on the U.S. Postal Service.
“Under other circumstances, the court would impose some sort of active sentence,” the federal judge said Tuesday in his Norfolk courtroom. “But it appears historically that is not the case.”
In all, Morgan sentenced Toya Worlds to almost five hours in a holding cell. Upon her release at 4 p.m., she will be placed on three years supervised probation.
