GREENBELT, Md. (AP) - A former letter carrier for the U.S. Postal Service in Maryland has been sentenced for delivering packages of marijuana to a conspirator on her route.

27-year-old Devona Charley of Washington was sentenced to a year in prison in federal court in Greenbelt on Monday.

According to her plea agreement, Charley provided 29-year-old Dominique Jones and others with addresses on her route. In a news release, the U.S. Attorney's Office said the conspirators shipped packages containing marijuana to those addresses and then Charley would hand them over to Jones at a predetermined location along the route.

Officials say Charley knew the packages contained marijuana, and she was paid $350 per package.

Jones, of Oxon Hill, pleaded guilty to his role in the conspiracy and was sentenced to more than four years in prison.
