The postmaster of Festus has been sentenced to two years in prison for her role in a scheme that cost the federal government 3.8 million dollars. Teresa Tremusini was convicted in June of two counts of receiving illegal gratuities.

The owner and an employee of SG Print & Mail, as well as another postal worker previously plead guilty in the case.

Prosecutors say Robert Scott Gray falsely claimed stamps were used on bulk mailings and concealed documentation from the Postal Service.
