An inmate at the United States Federal Penitentiary in Lee County, Virginia (USP Lee) admitted Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Abingdon to conspiring with others to bring illegal drugs into the prison, according to U.S. Attorney John P. Fishwick Jr.
Jermaine Calvin Jeffries, 44, pleaded guilty to one count of conspiring with others to provide methamphetamine to other inmates. He will be sentenced on January 11, 2017 and faces up to five additional years in prison.
