OKC Man Sentenced In Embezzlement Of $41,000 In Stamps

Posted: Updated:
OKLAHOMA CITY -

An Oklahoma man has been sentenced to 2 1/2 years in federal prison for writing bad checks to buy more than $41,000 worth of postage stamps.

Robert Jordan Chiles pleaded guilty to last year to an embezzlement charge in connection with the scheme, which was investigated by the United States Postal Inspection Service. The 32-year-old Oklahoma City man was sentenced Tuesday to 30 months in prison.

Prosecutors alleged that Chiles wrote checks for the stamps in February and March of last year, despite having insufficient funds in his bank accounts.

Federal prosecutors say Chiles was also ordered to forfeit 40,000 stamps that were found in his possession.

In court papers, Chiles' attorney had sought a sentence of probation for his client, saying that Chiles has accepted responsibility for his actions.
