Two men were sentenced recently to 10-year prison terms in connection with the discovery of marijuana in a Brown County Jail cell.
District Judge Steve Ellis sentenced Marvin Lynn Perot and Michael James Pittman after they pleaded guilty to prohibited substances and items in a correctional facility.
Perot and Pittman were among eight inmates in a cell when jailers found the marijuana on April 24, sheriff’s officials have said. All eight inmates were charged.
Sheriff’s officials believe Perot hid marijuana in a body cavity when he surrendered on a parole warrant, and provided it to his seven cellmates.
