A New Jersey man was sentenced to 17 months in jail for bribing postal employees to steal packages.
Jabre Beauvoir, 23, had pleaded responsible in June to at least one depend of bribery. U.S. District Choose Kevin McNulty imposed the sentence Tuesday and in addition ordered Beauvoir to pay restitution of about $24,000.
The U.S. lawyer’s workplace alleged that in the summertime of 2019 Beauvoir bribed U.S. Postal Service workers in Elizabeth to steal mail containing checkbooks and bank cards, normally paying them $100 per bundle.
Prosecutors alleged that Beauvoir and others then used the checks and bank cards to fraudulently acquire cash. Two Elizabeth postal employees have pleaded responsible and await sentencing.
A message looking for remark was left Tuesday with the federal public defender’s workplace in Newark, which represented Beauvoir.
