COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A federal judge has handed down an 18-month prison sentence for a former Ohio postal worker who stole gift cards from the mail and assaulted the federal agents who arrested him.

A probation department report had recommended a year in prison for Terrence McLean, while his attorney asked for six months behind bars.

At Tuesday's sentencing judge Algenon Marbley also ordered McLean to pay $2,640 to the victims, including $2,287 in worker compensation for medical bills.

Prosecutors had asked Marbley to consider the harm suffered by people the gift cards were sent to and injuries suffered by the agents when McLean punched and bit them.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Doug Squires said in a filing that McLean targeted greeting cards since they often contained money or gift cards.
