A postal carrier accused of stealing gift cards out of the mail was sentenced in federal court today.
April Taylor plead guilty to three counts of mail theft and today was sentenced to three years probation and six months of house arrest.
The now-fired mail carrier from Sopchoppy was indicted for stealing three gift cards from mail on her route.
"She apologized to the court for the ... what she's caused other people and she's lost her job which is tough in these economic times. She's struggling," said Taylor's attorney, William Clark.
Taylor had no comment as she left the federal courthouse this morning.
The judge ordered her to pay restitution, undergo drug counseling and continue working toward her G-E-D.
