A Cato woman has been charged after allegedly failing to deliver mail while working for the U.S. Postal Service.
Priscilla Czyz, 37, was arraigned in federal court and released pending further proceedings.
She was charged with obstructing the mail, according to prosecutors, who published a press release on January 8th outlining the case.
The charge against Czyz alleges that she obstructed the mail while working as a postal carrier by willfully failing to deliver mail entrusted to the United States Postal Service for delivery in Onondaga County between September 24th and October 7th.
The charge filed against Czyz carries a maximum sentence of 6 months in prison and a fine of up to $5,000. A defendant’s sentence is imposed by a judge based on the particular statute the defendant is charged with violating, the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other factors.
Prosecutors maintained that the investigation remains active, and is ‘merely’ an accusation.
