Postal Official Accused of Bribery

BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) _ A Connecticut postal official has been accused of taking payments from contractors and steering money to a company he allegedly established under someone else’s name.

Robert Giulietti of Cheshire appeared in U.S. District Court in Bridgeport on Thursday on charges of bribery, conspiracy and money laundering. Authorities say they seized $630,731 he allegedly received.

The 55-year-old Giulietti was a facilities project manager at the U.S. Postal Service in Windsor. He is accused of establishing under someone else’s name a company that charged the Postal Service more than it paid contractors.

He also is accused of a cover-up by depositing about $250,000 payable to the named owner of the company into bank accounts Giulietti controlled.

A person answering the phone at Giulietti’s home said he was not available. His lawyer did not immediately return a call.
