U.S. District Judge Mark Hornak on Tuesday approved a pre-trial diversion that will allow a Washington County contract truck driver for the U.S. Postal Service to avoid prosecution for mail theft if he goes a year without committing another crime.

John Marianov, 57, of Washington, stole cash and items valued at more than $4,000 from the mail routed through the post office on Jefferson Avenue in Washington, prosecutors say.

As part of the agreement, Marianov will pay $735 in restitution, which is amount that hasn't been recovered, prosecutors say.
