A Philadelphia postal worker could face up to six months in prison after delivering 22,000 pieces of mail to garbage bags in his garage instead of to its intended recipients. The haul, scheduled for delivery between May 2014 and January 2015, included “7,182 first class letters, 220 first class certified letters, 11,734 standard letters, five U.S. Treasury checks … 307 pieces of political mail … 2,508 non-profit letters … 417 second class periodicals and 137 small parcels.” It is not clear whether the good deed of preventing 307 strangers from having to look at another 2014 election mailer will win Patrick D’Ambrosio sympathy in trial.
