GREENBELT, Md. (AP) - A former letter carrier for the Postal Service has been sentenced for delivering packages of marijuana to a conspirator on her route.
Twenty-seven-year-old Devona Charley of Washington was sentenced to a year in prison in federal court in Greenbelt on Monday.
According to her plea agreement, Charley provided 29-year-old Dominique Jones and others with addresses on her route. Prosecutors say the conspirators shipped packages containing marijuana to those addresses.
Authorities say Charley took those packages with her on her route and gave them to Jones, who met her along her route.
Officials say Charley knew the packages contained marijuana, and she was paid $350 per package.
Jones, of Oxon Hill, pleaded guilty to his role in the conspiracy and was sentenced to more than four years in prison.
