Albuquerque Woman Pleads Guilty to Assaulting Postal Workers

Associated Press – July 17, 2018
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — An Albuquerque woman has pleaded guilty to assaulting three U.S. Postal Service employees last December and could be facing a federal prison sentence of up to 20 years.

Prosecutors say 25-year-old Jackie Herron entered her guilty plea Tuesday without a plea agreement.

Herron was arrested in February on a three-count indictment charging her with assaulting the postal employees in Bernalillo County last Dec. 22.

According to the indictment, Herron assaulted one employee by threatening to run her over and pointed a firearm at her.

Herron allegedly threatened to run over the second employee with a car and pointed a firearm at the third employee.

A sentencing hearing hasn’t been scheduled yet.

Prosecutors say Herron faces a maximum sentence of 20 years in federal prison and up to a $250,000 fine.
