Correctional Officer Sentenced in Jail Conspiracy
BALTIMORE — A correctional officer has been sentenced to three and a half years in prison for her role in a vast drug-smuggling operation at the Baltimore City Detention Center.
Twenty-five-year-old Adrena Rice of Baltimore was sentenced Wednesday in federal court in Baltimore. She had pleaded guilty in September to racketeering conspiracy.
According to her plea, Rice smuggled contraband, including marijuana and prescription pills, into the facility.
Eight other correctional officers have pleaded guilty in the conspiracy and are awaiting sentencing.
