BEAUMONT, Texas – Two Houston men have been indicted for federal violations in the Eastern District of Texas, announced U.S. Attorney Brit Featherston today.
Dontae Dewey McGee, 22, and Tyrin Terelle Robinson, 21, were named in an indictment returned by a federal grand jury on March 2, 2022, charging them with theft of mail, possession of stolen mail, and aiding and abetting. McGee and Robinson made initial appearances today before U.S. Magistrate Judge Zack Hawthorn.
If convicted, McGee and Robinson face up to five years in federal prison.
This case is being investigated by the U.S. Postal Inspection Service and the Beaumont Police Department and prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Jonathan Lee.
A grand jury indictment is not evidence of guilt. All defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
