MARIANNA, Fla. (AP) - Two guards are charged with smuggling cell phones, tobacco, synthetic marijuana and other contraband into a federal prison in the Florida Panhandle.
Prosecutors on Monday announced the indictments of 28-year-old Steven M. Smith and 30-year-old Mary S. Summers.
They were charged with bribery and smuggling contraband into the Federal Correctional Institution at Marianna in exchange for cash and stored-value cards from inmates.
If convicted each could face up to 15 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
Prosecutors did not know if they had lawyers and none were listed in court records.
