Prison guard sentenced to 15 years in prison

November 29, 2005

Calhoun County - 21-year old Kanoshia Bradley was sentenced to 15 years in prison for smuggling drugs to inmates at Calhoun State Prison where she worked. Prosecutors say she smuggled cocaine and marijuana into the prison inside of a box of cookies. A drug-sniffing dog detected the drugs in her car during a sweep of employee vehicles. She was fired after her arrest.

District Attorney Joe Mulholland says, "It's definitely a message that was sent to the Department of Corrections and also to the folks that wear the badge, that they abide by the rules. They're not above the law."

The 21 year old Albany woman worked at Calhoun State prison for just over a year.
