LA Woman Who Filmed Assault On Postal Worker Gets Prison Time

LOS ANGELES, CA — A Los Angeles woman who stood by taking cell phone video of her then-boyfriend as he robbed and attempted to strangle a female letter carrier was sentenced Monday to six months behind bars for helping steal mail from the postal worker.

Sherrie Shaw, 32, must also serve three years on supervised release following her federal prison term for receiving property obtained in the April 2018 robbery of a United States Postal Service carrier.

Prior to imposing the sentence, U.S. District Judge Cormac J. Carney described the video in which Shaw was heard “mocking and ridiculing” the struggling victim as evidence “that obviously troubled me.”

Co-defendant Tommy Lee Jones, 44, of Los Angeles was sentenced in September to four years and three months in prison after pleading guilty to a charge of assaulting a federal employee resulting in bodily injury.
