LOS ANGELES – A former United States Postal Service employee was sentenced today to 132 months in federal prison for participating in two armed robberies and one theft of USPS trucks carrying cash – incidents that caused nearly a quarter million dollars in losses and significant trauma to one of its victims who later took his own life.

William Crosby IV, 33, of Inglewood, was sentenced this morning by United States District Judge S. James Otero, who also ordered Crosby to pay $238,457 in restitution. On July 31, Crosby pleaded guilty to one count of robbery of United States property and one count of brandishing a firearm in furtherance of a violent crime. Between August 2017 and March 2018, while a USPS employee, Crosby conspired with others to plan two armed robberies and a theft of USPS trucks carrying cash. The armed robberies and theft caused cash losses of $238,457, Crosby admitted in his plea agreement.
