United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Mission, man convicted of Burglary of a Post Office was sentenced on August 28, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.
Jesse Robinson, age 27, was sentenced to 6 months in custody, 2 years of supervised release to include 6 months of home confinement.
Robinson was indicted for Burglary of a Post Office and Theft of Mail by a federal grand jury on August 21, 2013. He pled guilty to Burglary of a Post Office on May 27, 2014.
The conviction arose from an incident that occurred in June 2013 when Robinson used a crowbar to pry open a window on the front of the U.S. Post Office in Mission. Once he was inside, Robinson took four first class COD envelopes addressed to other individuals that contained mail-ordered prescription medication.
Robinson will report to the U.S. Marshals Service on September 2, 2014, to begin serving his sentence.
