Carrier admits failing to deliver 700 pieces of mail

A Tonawanda mail carrier has pleaded guilty to failing to deliver 700 pieces of U.S. mail, which she stored in her home instead of delivering.

Jennifer Serrano, 26, pleaded guilty to obstruction of the mail before U.S. Magistrate Judge Jeremiah J. McCarthy. The charge carries a maximum penalty of six months in prison and a $5,000 fine.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Elizabeth R. Moellering, who is handling the case, said Serrano brought undelivered mail home between March 2013 and February 2014. The defendant has since resigned from the U.S. Postal Service.

Serrano will be sentenced Aug. 16 by McCarthy.
