Former postal employee sentenced for embezzling postal funds

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

A Concord woman was sentenced today to 21 months in prison and one year of supervised release for misappropriation of postal funds.

A federal jury found Leslie McCready, 45, of Concord, guilty of one count of misappropriation of postal funds, according to a news release from the U.S. Attorney's Office.

According to evidence presented at trial, McCready was the Lead Sales and Service Associate at a Postal Office in Charlotte. McCready created fraudulent "Service not Rendered" transactions in her terminal and converted cash from the refund transactions for her personal use. Between March 2008 and July
2009, McCready performed 1,452 "Service not Rendered" transactions, totaling $51,530.09.

Many of the "Service not Rendered" transactions entered by McCready took place after the
customer service lobby was closed. Evidence at trial included videotaped surveillance of
McCready entering fraudulent refund transactions and pocketing cash from the terminal.

McCready, who has been released on bond since April 2011, was permitted to self-report to the Federal Bureau of Prisons upon designation of a facility. Federal sentences are served without the possibility of parole.
