A Kentucky mail carrier is behind bars for hiding more than 44,000 pieces of mail in a storage facility and his dead mother's home.
Kentucky Chief U.S. District Judge Joseph McKinley Jr. hit William "Brent" Morse of Dawson Springs with a sentence of six months in jail and six months of home incarceration for “destroying, hiding and delaying the delivery of U.S. mail.”
"He wanted to speed up his route," police Capt. Craig Patterson told The Courier-Journal. "I think he was lazy."
The federal employee was also ordered to shell out $15,000 in restitution to people who had their mail delayed or destroyed, the newspaper reported.
