Former Postal Worker Sentenced

Former Postal Worker Sentenced

A former western Wisconsin postal worker will spend the next three years on probation for stealing 26 thousand-dollars from the Post Office.

A federal judge in Madison yesterday handed down the sentence to 45-year-old  Megan Torrez from Alma. Investigators say she would write bad checks for postal money orders at the post office she managed in Nelson, Wisconsin. She was caught when one of those checks bounced and came back to postal inspectors. Torrez told the judge she used the money to cover for her husband who lost his job during the coronavirus outbreak.
