A Hammond resident has been sentenced to three years of probation after pleading guilty to making false statements to the U.S. Postal Service, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Indiana said.

Sonyinee Davis-Pope, 39, was sentenced last week.

“According to documents filed in this case, Pope admitted that she submitted on-line employment applications to the United States Postal Service,” the U.S. Attorney’s Office said. “In each application, she made a false statement or representation by either using a false name, false date of birth, false Social Security number, or by failing to disclose that she had prior felony convictions. She submitted the false applications in order to pass the pre-employment background check.”

“In all, she submitted over 50 on-line employment applications to the United States Postal Service between July 2010 and February 2011 for employment in Northwest Indiana, Illinois, and Alabama,” the U.S. Attorney’s Office said.

The case was investigated by the U.S. Postal Service’s Office of the Inspector General.
