Hero May Do Time
For 13 years Steven Padgett delivered mail in Apex, N.C., through rain, snow, sleet and dark of night. And for about 7 years those on his route never received any junk mail. No circulars, no pizza coupons and no oil change offers. And the USPS received no complaints about him. (He stored them in his garage). His attorney claims that this was done due to the delivery demands and strict schedule imposed upon him. He faces up to 5 years in federal prison and a $250000 fine. Sentencing is set for Nov. 17.
