A Michigan postal worker who hid thousands of pieces of mail in a self-storage unit has been placed on probation for two years. Jill Hull, 35, pleaded guilty to deserting the mail three months ago. She said she couldn’t keep up with her route in Livingston County. Today she was sentenced in federal court, where she apologized to U.S. Magistrate Judge R. Steven Whalen, who decided not to order her with a fine.
Managers of the storage facility discovered the unopened mail in September 2008. Some had postmarks from 2005.
