(Scroll down for video) The United States Postal Service (USPS) was hit with a lawsuit after at least 12 women were attacked by the same mailman, according to court documents in Washington.
58-year-old Robert J. Taitano of Tacoma, is serving time in prison after being convicted of assault with sexual motivation and criminal trespass.
He was also ordered to register as a sex offender. Meosha Turner told the court that Taitano came inside her home without permission.
He entered through the front door while Turner was in the bathroom. When questioned by Turner about why he was in the house, he had no answer.
Turner ordered him to leave, but he refused. He eventually left the home after she grabbed a knife from the kitchen. Turner called police who discovered that at least 12 women filed complaints against Taitano for 12 years.
The United States Postal Service did nothing to stop Taitano.
Taitano eventually lost his job, but was later reinstated.
Taintano then continued to harass and sexually assaulted women along his route. He grabbed women and made unwanted sexual comments.
Taitano was sentenced to serve four months in jail.
