Smuggling drugs into the jail inside her body will cost a woman 45 additional days behind bars.
The woman, Carrie Lynn Green, 29, entered a plea by information before Circuit Court Judge Bart Stanley to the charge of attempted introduction of contraband into a penal institution. The plea bypassed the case having to go through the grand jury and was settled directly before the judge. As part of the agreement, she will serve 45 days of a two-year sentence.
Her sentence comes after she was taken into custody on an unrelated charge of violation of probation. During her being processed into the jail, she was placed in the shower. It was at that time female jailers noticed something apparently fall out of her body.
A closer search of the black container which was seen falling onto the shower floor netted several drugs including eight Klonopin, two Xanax, and some marijuana.
Persons being arrested are warned to declare any illegal narcotics or contraband such as tobacco before they are booked inside the jail as discovery of the items once they are admitted to the facility will carry the extra charge of smuggling.
