Man who rerouted UPS mail to Chicago apartment sentenced

A former UPS worker who pleaded guilty to mail fraud for rerouting mail meant for the shipping company's headquarters to his Chicago apartment was sentenced to a year in prison.

U.S. District Judge Charles Norgle on Friday sentenced Dushaun Henderson-Spruce after the defendant apologized for his actions. The sentence is close to time served, because Henderson-Spruce has been in custody for about 11 months.

Henderson-Spruce submitted a form on Oct. 26, 2017 to change the address of the company's headquarters from Atlanta, Georgia, to his one-bedroom garden apartment.

Court records say a UPS security coordinator discovered the change Jan. 16, 2018 and postal inspectors retrieved about 3,000 pieces of mail from the apartment.

Henderson-Spruce deposited more than 10 checks addressed to UPS totaling more than $58,000 into his bank account during the fraud.
