A mother has been arrested for slipping drugs to her incarcerated son with a kiss.
Fifty-four-year-old Kimberly Margeson allegedly passed her son, 30-year-old William Partridge, two Oxycodone pills when she kissed him during a visit on January 29.
According to The SmokingGun, Margeson has been charged with a felony count of criminal sale of a controlled substance and a misdemeanor count of promoting prison contraband. She pleaded not guilty to both charges and was released on $2,000 bail.
Partridge has been charged with a misdemeanor count of promoting prison contraband and will be arraigned on February 11. He is currently incarcerated on an unrelated felony weapon possession charge and, according to deputies, had only been in jail since January 26, just three days before Margeson’s visit.
Deputies also said the pills were apparently intended for Partridge’s personal use and not for resale.
A kiss is just one way drugs have been smuggled into prisons. In June, an inmate filled a condom with prescription drugs and put it inside her vagina. The condom broke, however, and 256 pills spilled out. The inmate was charged with five misdemeanor counts of criminal possession of a controlled substance and felony promotion of prison contraband.
However, these two stories might not be the weirdest cases of desperate attempts to smuggle contraband into a prison. Last month, a white cat wrapped with tape and carrying a saw, a cell phone and charger, batteries, and a memory card was spotted outside the main gate of a Brazilian prison. Officials were unsure which of the 263 inmates attempted to smuggle the cat and the contraband into the prison.
