Lockport woman pleads to stealing funds

Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — A Lockport woman pleaded guilty Friday in federal court in Buffalo to theft of government funds.

Kathleen Cordero, 48, faces a maximum penalty of one year in prison, a fine of $100,000 or both, said U.S. Attorney William J. Hochul, Jr.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Russell T. Ippolito, Jr., who is handling the case, said that Cordero, a rural carrier associate for the United States Postal Service, collected unemployment insurance benefits for which she was not entitled.

According to the U.S. ttorney’s office, Cordero, between July 11, 2010, and May 13, 2012, failed to report income earned from the U.S. Postal Service in order to qualify for and receive unemployment insurance benefits to which she was not entitled.

In total, Cordero stole $5,662.75 in unemployment insurance benefits from the U.S. Postal Service.

 The plea is the result of an investigation by the United States Postal Service, the United States Department of Labor, Office of Labor Racketeering and Fraud Investigations and the New York State Department of Labor.

 Sentencing is scheduled for Feb. 1, 2013 at 10 a.m. before Judge Hugh B. Scott.
