More often than not, if you do the crime, you’ll be ordered to serve the time.
After stealing more than $22,000 worth of U.S. Postal Service (USPS) stamps, Kevin Fields, a resident of Somersworth, N.H., was sentenced to 30 months in prison, federal investigators announced last week.
According to investigators, Fields admitted to using counterfeit checks to buy USPS stamps in New Hampshire and Maine – about 1,000 kilometres east of Toronto – before selling the stamps to pawn shops for cash and electronics.
He has been ordered to repay the value of the stolen stamps (nearly $28,000 Cdn.) to the USPS.
