On behalf of J. Kippa Law, LLC | September 8, 2017
A Wisconsin woman has been accused of smuggling drugs into a prison so that her incarcerated boyfriend could sell it. The 36-year-old Kaukauna woman allegedly brought cocaine into the prison by hiding it in her bra. She would then pass the drugs to the boyfriend when they kissed.
According to reports, the 35-year-old boyfriend was allegedly selling cocaine and pot to other inmates in 2013 and 2014. The records said that the man would line up those who wanted drugs. Those buyers would prepare by having money orders and cash sent to a post office box. The accused woman would take the cash and buy drugs in Milwaukee. She would then bring the drugs into prison and transfer them to the boyfriend.
The woman, who was scheduled to be arraigned for charges on Sept. 8, allegedly told authorities that she brought in drugs five times. She allegedly asked postal officials about missing money after telling them that she was receiving cash in the post office box. In March 2014, agents set up a controlled drug purchase. She was not taken into custody until February 2016. She was ultimately charged with felony delivery of cocaine and faces 25 years in prison if she is convicted.
Those who are accused of delivering drugs or possessing drugs with the intent to sell could face serious consequences. If a person is facing a lengthy jail sentence or other severe punishments, a criminal law attorney could examine the case and determine what potential options are available. If there is insufficient evidence that the defendant was involved in the drug crimes, the attorney may challenge the charges.
