The postmaster of the suburban St. Louis town of Festus has been sentenced to two years in prison for her role in a scheme that defrauded the Postal Service of nearly $4 million.
Teresa Tremusini was convicted in June of two counts of receiving illegal gratuities. She was sentenced Friday in U.S. District Court in St. Louis.
