Federal authorities say Postal Service agents saw Terrence McLean open envelopes and remove the contents while sorting mail in June at the Columbus center and put mail in his sock and down his pants.

Agents say the 37-year-old McLean punched and bit them when they arrested him.

McLean, who resigned as part of the plea, pleaded guilty Thursday to multiple counts of mail theft and receiving stolen mail and two counts of assaulting a federal officer. He faces up to 20 years in prison.

Investigators recovered 71 first-class letters, 20 gift cards and $341 in cash when searching McLean.

WOW, if he had this much mail on him, I wonder how much more he had stolen before he was caught. I also wonder if he was on drugs. In so many of these pictures they look like they are about to fall asleep.

Libel and defamation is something that can't be proven and I can prove everything I've ever said about those trouble-making Huronites, that snake Lorain County law firm and the Erie County courts.

The truth sure is ugly, isn't it?
