BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) — A former Vermont postmaster has been fined $250 and put on probation for one year for obstructing the mail.
Frank J. Strzelec, former officer in charge of the Center Rutland Post Office, pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of obstructing the passage of mail. Federal prosecutors say that in late 2009, Strzelec submitted three change-of-address forms and some magazine subscription orders on behalf of a woman without her knowledge or consent.
He was sentenced Friday in federal court in Burlington. In addition to the fines and probation, Strzelec was ordered to have no contact with the woman.
