A Lubbock judge sentenced Lucian Banks to pay back $926.35 and serve a year in jail Wednesday after he pled guilty to obstructing the mail last month.
A Lubbock grand jury indicted Banks for mail theft back in December, but as part of a plea bargain he admitted to a lesser charge of obstructing the mail.
Banks admitted to taking envelopes out of someone's mailbox. Those envelopes had checks in them to pay bills. The value was more than $300 dollars.
Banks was arrested in Brentwood, California and brought back to Lubbock to stand trial.
