Former U.S. Postal employee sentenced for destroying mail

OWENSBORO, KY (WFIE) -

A former United States Postal Service employee has been sentenced to six months in prison for destroying, hiding and delaying the delivery of at least 44,900 pieces of mail.

34-year-old William "Brent" Morse of Dawson Springs was also ordered to pay $14,808 for losses suffered by residents, a bank and two businesses.

Authorities say Morse admitted that he destroyed at least 1,000 pieces of mail between March 2011 and March 2013.

He also stored 44,900 pieces of mail at his deceased mother's home and at rented storage facilities in Dawson Springs.

The recovered mail has since been delivered.

Morse will have to serve six months house arrest following his prison sentence.
