Altering U.S. Postal money orders has earned a Sioux City man a 10-month sentence in federal prison.
54-year-old Larry Walters pleaded guilty to the crime in federal court, Wednesday.
Prosecutors say Walters operated the postage meter machine which was used to place postage fees on College mailings at Morningside College. Court documents say Walters generated errant postage fees on envelopes, and returned them to the post office. Walters then got money orders as refunds for the errors. When Walters got the money orders, prosecutors say he'd alter them in a way that made himself the beneficiary.
In all, court papers say Walters got more than $65,000. He has to pay the money back.
