Destruction of mailboxes puts probation stamp on Tulsa woman
A Tulsa woman was sentenced Friday for destroying post office boxes at a U.S. Post Office station located in south Tulsa, announced U.S. Attorney Trent Shores.
Hillary Ginn was sentenced to 5 years probation this morning before U.S. Magistrate Judge Jodi F. Jayne. Ginn will also be responsible for paying $281.20 in restitution to the U.S. Postal Service.
“As Americans, we rely on the U.S. postal system for so many things. From personal finance to personal correspondence, we regard the mail as sacred,” said U.S. Attorney Trent Shores. “It is our job as prosecutors and law enforcement to stop criminals like Hillary Ginn who would raid mailboxes and destroy receptacles all for her personal gain.”
On Aug. 26, 2020, Ginn pleaded guilty to destruction of federal property. Ginn admitted that from Aug. 18, 2019 through Sept. 22, 2019, she damaged letter boxes, mailboxes, and other receptacles located in the Tulsa, Oklahoma, Sheridan Station.
The Tulsa Police Department and U.S. Postal Inspection Service conducted the investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Kevin Leitch prosecuted the case.
