Mobile, Ala. (AP) - A former postal clerk from Baldwin County who admitted stealing holiday gift cards sent through the mail last Christmas has been sentenced to three years on probation.
In Mobile, U.S. District Judge Kristi Dubose adopted prosecutors' recommendation in sentencing 67-year-old Ellen Bosch, whose daughter is a Baldwin County judge.
Dubose also fined her $500, ordered her to pay $495 to compensate her victims and to seek mental health treatment.
Bosch, of Foley, a federal postal employee for more than two decades, pleaded guilty in June to possession of stolen mail.
She lost her job after the allegations surfaced.
Bosch admitted to stealing seven gift cards from Target, one from Best Buy and one from Ruby Tuesday.
