MADISON (WAOW) – A former postal worker in northern Wisconsin has been sentenced to 30 days in jail and ordered to pay $355 in fines and restitution for stealing cash from letters, U.S. Attorney John Vaudreuil said Wednesday.
Katie Dassow, 26, now of Medford, was convicted of one count of theft of mail after pleading guilty to the charge in U.S. District Court, the prosecutor said.
Dassow was accused of removing about $155 from letters last May and June while she worked at the St. Germain Post Office, Vaudreuil said in a statement. She was accused of targeting greeting cards.
Dassow was charged following an investigation conducted by the Postal Service's Office of Inspector General, the prosecutor said.
