A state prison inmate's wife faces a charge herself after allegedly getting caught trying to deliver marijuana during a visit in January.
Lakeisha Davis, 20, of Omaha is accused of delivery of marijuana, which carries a one- to 20-year sentence if she's convicted.
In an affidavit for Davis' arrest, Nebraska Department of Correctional Services Officer Benny Noordhoek said Penitentiary staff confiscated a small package of marijuana from Michael Benson during a visit Jan. 13 with his wife and infant son.
About 20 minutes after the visit started, he said, staff became suspicious of how Benson and Davis were behaving.
A check of video surveillance showed Davis putting something in Benson's pants pocket, Noordhoek said. He said prison staff took Benson to a strip search room, where Benson threw a bag of marijuana to the floor.
Davis was allowed to leave that day. Earlier this month, a warrant went out for her arrest.
Benson is in prison on drug and theft charges out of Douglas County.
