Postal worker gets jail for gift card theft but may never serve a day January 4, 2010

James Rosciano III, one of two former U.S. Postal Service workers who admitted stealing more than 500 employee incentive gift cards worth a total of $24,675 was sentenced by Superior Court Judge Frederick De Vesa (my favorite judge by the way) to serve 180 days in the Middlesex County jail and repay his half of the theft.  He was also placed on probation for five years and the jail time is a condition of the probation.  However, the jail time won’t start until July 1, 2014, because Rosciano is a single father responsible for his two sons.

This is an odd sentence so I have to wonder if he was looking at more serious charges that were dismissed as a result of the plea. Regardless, I doubt he will see a day of jail time.  In about 4 years, an attorney can file a motion to just end the probation without the jail.  It shouldn’t be that difficult to do if this guy does the right thing.

This Creton was charged with simple assault recently any thoughts on what would happen if he is conicted ?

Not much for a simple assault charge. Probably just a fine.

wouldn’t it affect the terms of his probation ?

Probably not. I’ve had people get a number of VOP’s for selling drugs, dirty urines, fights, missing appointments, etc, and in the end, nothing happened to them.
