A man accused in February of stealing while he worked as a contract driver for the U.S. Postal Service has had his prosecution deferred, according to court papers filed Tuesday and today. John Marianov, 57, of Washington, was accused of stealing more than $3,800 in gift cards, $120 in opera tickets, $400 in checks and $80 in money orders and some cash from a mail depository at the Washington post office on Jefferson Avenue. He was charged with felony mail theft. A motion by Assistant U.S. Attorney Tonya Sulia Goodman indicated that Mr. Marianov entered into a written, one-year agreement to "demonstrate good conduct and thereby avoid further prosecution of this case." U.S. District Judge Mark R. Hornak granted the motion and terminated the case today.
