A woman who tried to smuggle drugs into Warren County Jail was among those sentenced by Judge Bart Stanley in Circuit Court.
The smuggler, Bridgett Ann Carroll, entered guilty pleas to charges of promoting the manufacture of meth and introduction of contraband into a penal institution. She was sentenced to serve two years in the women’s penitentiary in addition to whatever time she owes the state for violation of parole. She must also undergo a drug and alcohol assessment.
Carroll was caught with the contraband as corrections officers were dressing her in an orange jail outfit getting ready to place her into the general jail population. It was at that point officers found a purple container on her person. Inside the container was white powder and a tongue bar. Carroll had just been arrested on the charge of promoting the manufacture of meth.
