The crime of Promoting Prison Contraband involves the introduction of unauthorized items into a correctional facility. This act is considered a serious offense, and the consequences can be severe. To better understand this, it’s essential to examine the elements of the crime:

  • A person is guilty of promoting prison contraband if:
  • He or she intentionally introduces or possesses any contraband in a detention facility.
  • He or she provides, obtains, or possesses contraband with the intent to deliver it to a person confined in a detention facility.

There are varying degrees of the crime of promoting prison contraband. The first degree, a Class C felony, is when the contraband item is a dangerous instrument or weapon. The second degree, a Class A misdemeanor, involves any other type of contraband.

The Second degree of this crime is much more common for those who are not in prison already. It usually is charged when a person is arrested for another crime and happens to have contraband like drugs or a weapon that they did not tell police about before arriving at the jail. This allows a very difficult situation to become much worse.

With our 25 years of experience, The Stoves Law Firm, P.C., has helped many clients counter charges of promoting prison contraband. We employ a number of defenses based on the circumstances of the case.

  • Lack of Knowledge: One common defense is asserting that the defendant was unaware that they were in possession of contraband items.
  • Lack of Intent: It may also be argued that the defendant had no intent to deliver the contraband to a person confined in a detention facility.
  • Wrongly Accused: In some cases, a defendant may have been wrongly identified or falsely accused, and these instances require a rigorous defense to establish innocence.

Each case is unique, and the potential defenses are specific to the circumstances surrounding the crime. It is essential to have a competent, experienced legal team by your side, such as The Stoves Law Firm, P.C., to navigate these complexities.
