TYLER (KYTX) A 43-year-old Henderson, Texas woman has pleaded guilty to federal violations in the Eastern District of Texas, announced U.S. Attorney John M. Bales.

Tracy A. Bojorquez, former Postmaster Relief at the Joinerville Post Office, has pleaded guilty to misappropriation of United State postal funds today before U.S. Magistrate Judge John D. Love.

According to information presented in court, from July 2012 to May 2013, Bojorquez was the relief postmaster at the Joinerville Post Office in Rusk County, Texas. 

During that time, she embezzled payments she received at the Post Office for postal money orders, post office box rental fees, and the sale of U.S. postage stamps. 

The unreimbursed losses to the U.S. Postal Service amounted to $5,132.23.  Bojorquez was indicted by a federal grand jury on Nov. 20, 2013. 

Bojorquez faces up to 10 years in federal prison.  A sentencing date has not been set.

This case is being investigated by the U.S. Postal Service, Office of Inspector General and prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Allen Hurst.
