Jeffrey Shipley of Millersville, the postal worker accused of stealing mail by the bagful, pleaded guilty Thursday to the theft of “more than 20,000 pieces of mail in Catonsville over a nine-year period.” Shipley faces up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
“Growing up, I was certain that I’d be an artist. I was good, but I didn’t apply my talent. Eventually I found myself with two children whom I adored, and a job I despised. My creative nature was left unfulfilled.”
At his hearing, Shipley stated that he suffered from obsessive-compulsive disorder and possibly bipolar disorder. His public defender indicated that Shipley’s mental issues may be cited by the defense during sentencing.
