Tallahassee, Fla. -- A former federal prison guard who admitted smuggling contraband to prisoners for sex and money will spend a year in prison.

Alfred Barnes of Thomas County, Georgia, was sentenced today to a year in prison and three years on probation. He pleaded guilty in September to conspiracy to commit mail fraud.

A second guard from Thomas County, E. Lavon Spence pleaded guilty to mail fraud but has not yet been sentenced.

The investigation ended with a deadly shootout in June at the Tallahassee Federal Correctional Institution when agents showed up to make arrests. A suspect and a federal agent were killed.
