HAGÅTÑA, Guam (Pacific Daily News, Feb. 21, 2017) – For almost a year, a postal employee was taking cash and drugs in exchange for helping people bring in packages of methamphetamine to Guam, according to a plea agreement filed in federal court Tuesday.

Michelle Dudkiewicz, a postal employee, used a telephone to facilitate delivery of packages containing methamphetamine, court documents state.

She tracked packages and helped people in other ways to bring methamphetamine to the island from March 2015 through February 2016, documents state.

She knew the packages she was tracking had drugs and she knew her associates intended to sell the drugs on Guam, although she did not know the specific quantity or quality of the drugs, according to the plea agreement. Dudkiewicz reportedly received cash and meth in exchange.

Dudkiewicz agreed to plead guilty to one count of use of a communication facility in connection with drug trafficking, which is a felony.

As part of the plea deal, Dudkiewicz will cooperate with the government and tell them about her involvement in any criminal activities and the criminal activities of other people. She also agreed to testify in any future trials or hearings.

She initially was indicted on conspiracy to possess methamphetamine with intent to distribute, court records show.

Because Dudkiewicz entered a plea deal, she gave up her right to a jury trial. If the chief judge accepts her guilty plea, Dudkiewicz can be sentenced.

The maximum sentence for using a communication facility in committing a drug trafficking offense is four years in federal prison and a $250,000 fine, according to court documents.
