Alabama post office robber wants sentence shortened

February 2, 2024


OXFORD – An Alabama woman, convicted of robbing the Randolph post office in 2016, is now asking that her 22-year prison sentence be reduced. Federal prosecutors disagree.

A federal jury found Angela Roy, 42, of Wilmer, Alabama, guilty for her part in the armed robbery, in which a postmaster was shot. U.S. District Judge Michael P. Mills sentenced Roy to serve a total of 270 months for aiding and abetting in the armed robbery and discharge of a firearm during that robbery.

In a motion filed last week in U.S. District Court in Oxford, Roy cited a change in the federal sentencing guidelines. Recalculations under her criminal history category using the new formula could result in a reduction in her recommended sentence. The one-page standardized motion filed Jan. 26 does not have any backing material or narrative to explain why Roy thinks she is eligible for a reduction
