Judge Ross issues sentences
Placeholder Image

A woman who brought drugs into the jail inside her person has been bound to the grand jury on smuggling charges.
The woman, Carrie Green, waived her right to preliminary hearing and was bound to the grand jury by General Sessions Judge Larry Ross on the charge of introduction of contraband into the county jail.
Her charges come after female jailers reported seeing something fall onto the floor of the shower as she was being prepared to be placed into the general population. Officers said the container was black in color and apparently had been smuggled somewhere inside her person. Inside the container were several pills.
The introduction of contraband charge comes after she failed to declare she was holding the pills. Introduction of any banned item, ranging from drugs to cellphones, is considered contraband and has led to criminal charges in the past at Warren County Jail.
