ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – Ethan Guido, 31, of Albuquerque, New Mexico was
sentenced in federal court on May 27 in Albuquerque to 24 months in
prison for assault upon a federal employee involving use of a deadly
weapon and assault upon a federal employee involving physical contact.
Guido pleaded guilty to these offenses on Aug. 20, 2019.
According to Guido’s plea agreement, he walked into a United States
Postal Office with returned mail for insufficient postage in Bernalillo
County, New Mexico on May 29, 2019. As postal service members attempted
to explain the reason for the returned mail, Guido became angry and was
asked to leave. Guido then walked up to the postal service member as he
walked out of the building and rammed him with his chest, knocking the
postal service member to the ground. Guido then proceeded to drive away
from the parking lot, reversed his car, hit the postal service member
and sped away.
The United States Postal Inspection Service investigated
this case. Assistant U.S. Attorneys Eva Mae Fontanez and Niki
Tapia-Brito prosecuted the case.
