A retired senior postal inspector who held a high position with the Postal Service in San Francisco was sentenced in federal court in Boise today for mailing 64 separate parcels containing everything from his golf clubs to a microwave oven to Boise, where he had purchased a home last summer and was retiring, without paying postage on the parcels. According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office, the inspector, Gregory Staisiunas, 50, sent the parcels via registered mail using “penalty cover” labels that showed postage and fees had been paid; those labels were supposed to be only for official government mail. He also admitted sending liquor and ammunition through the mail, which is illegal. Convicted of two misdemeanors and five petty infractions, Staisiunas was sentenced to $2,504 in restitution for the unpaid postage, $13,944.57 in fines and 200 hours of community service.
