Six months for "lazy" postie

No primary category set

If you’ve had a parcel go missing in the Musselburgh area between December 2004 and March 2006, chances are it might be about to be delivered. An East Lothian postwoman kept 5,820 parcels in her home, because she was “too lazy” to deliver them. At Christmas, she opened twelve of the packages, but they have been recovered. The defending counsel said that she had been at a low ebb and had found her job overwhelming, but had always intended to deliver the parcels at some later date. The postwoman pleaded guilty, and was sentenced to six months in jail.
