NORFOLK, Va. (AP) - A former U.S. Postal Service worker who admitted to dumping hundreds of pieces of mail will spend six months on home confinement.

Shalita Corley will be on probation for five years after she completes the home confinement.

WVEC-TV (https://bit.ly/1HxLH8Z ) reports that the 31-year-old Portsmouth resident was sentenced on Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Norfolk.

Corley had pleaded guilty in April to one count of secreting and delaying U.S. mail.

Court records show a Norfolk resident saw Corley walking around an overgrown lot and acting suspiciously on Feb. 3. The resident found two trash bags containing mail after Corley left in a Postal Service vehicle.

The Postal Service recovered seven additional trash bags containing mail from the lot during the following week.
