BIRMINGHAM – A former postal carrier pleaded guilty this week in federal court to accepting a bribe to deliver marijuana in the U.S. mail as part of a conspiracy to distribute the drug, said Robert Posey, acting U.S. Attorney, and Frank Dyer, U.S. postal inspector.
Deann Marchett Dixon Stevenson, 43, of Birmingham, entered her guilty plea Tuesday before U.S. District Judge R. David Proctor. The U.S. Attorney’s Office had charged Stevenson in February.
Stevenson was a mail carrier at the Meadowbrook Post Office. She admitted conspiring to distribute marijuana in Jefferson and Shelby counties between January and September 2016. Court documents do not name her co-conspirators.
