BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - The Source

SDNY COURTHOUSE, June 29 – Cesar Vasquez, while working at the US Post Office on West 30th Street in Manhattan, was charged with diverting and opening mail.

On June 29 he appeared in ordre to plead guilty before U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Jed Rakoff. Inner City Press live tweeted it.  

The case involved the USPS Processing & Distribution Center in Manhattan and "Delay or Destruction of Mail."    

Judge Rakoff asked the government if it has enough proof it went to trial. 

Defendant says, Yes. 

Judge Rakoff: I'm glad you agree to. Please tell me in your own words what you did.  Defendant: I misplaced the envelopes. I was slowing up the process. 

Judge Rakoff: You were a postal employee - and you opened some of the letters, right?  Defendant: Yes.  Judge Rakoff: In what borough?

 Defendant: In Morgan, 30th and 9th in Manhattan. 

Judge Rakoff: Sentencing will be in December. 

Defense lawyer: He would like to visit Florida-

 Defendant: California, it is. 

Defense lawyer: Please give us a moment. California. And we'll give Pre-Trial Services the information.

 Judge Rakoff: You would fly? 

Defendant: I wanted to go to Miami but they have too many Coronavirus cases. So LAX. 

Judge Rakoff: It's your life not mine. July 17 to 23. Give Probation your addresses and cell number.

The case is US v. Vazquez, 20-cr-154 (Rakoff).
