Ok. So this may not be the federal crime of the century, but it may rank as one of the lowlier ones.

Postal worker Dean Hudson, 29, of Marysville,  Calif. pleaded guilty in May to stealing money from childrens’ birthday cards at a postal facility  in northern California, according to court records.

He was sentenced Friday to five months in prison and five months of home detention after his release. He was also ordered to pay $3,000 in restitution.

According to an affidavit by Shani Lee, a special agent with the U.S. Postal Service, homes and local post offices serviced by the distribution center Hudson worked at complained about tampered mail and missing money.

The agent also found that in 2008 Hudson was caught shoplifting at a Target department store.
