A mother and son have been jailed for smuggling drugs into Guys Marsh prison in Shaftesbury.
Sharon Kennedy, 43, and Joshua Milkins, 23, from Bristol, each pleaded guilty to five offences relating to the supply and possession with intent to supply of class A, B and C drugs at Dorchester Crown Court on Tuesday December 10.
Sharon Kennedy was sentenced to two years in prison. Joshua Milkins received a 40 month custodial sentence.
The court heard how on Sunday February 17, Sharon Kennedy was seen on CCTV handing over a package to Joshua Milkins while visiting him in prison.
The package was later found to contain controlled drugs and mobile phone SIM cards.
DC Ian Frizzle said: “These convictions and sentences send a clear message that these crimes are not acceptable and will not be tolerated.
“Dorset Police, in partnership with HM Prison Service, is committed to stamping out this type of offending. We will continue to work closely together to bring offenders to justice.”
Governor of HMP Guys Marsh, Duncan Burles, said: “These sentences highlight the seriousness of this type of crime, and we will continue to work with local criminal justice partners to stamp out this type of offending.”
