An Omaha woman caught trying to bring marijuana to her husband, an inmate at the Nebraska State Penitentiary, during a visit in January got fined for it.
Lakeisha Davis, 20, originally was charged with delivery of marijuana, a felony.
But in court Tuesday, she pleaded no contest to a reduced charge of attempt to convey an article to an inmate, a misdemeanor.
Lancaster County Judge Timothy Phillips fined her $500.
On Jan 13, penitentiary staff confiscated a small package of marijuana from Michael Benson during a visit with his wife and infant son. About 20 minutes after the visit started, staff became suspicious of how Benson and Davis were behaving.
When prison staff took Benson to a strip search room, he threw a bag of marijuana to the floor.
He is in prison on drug and theft charges out of Douglas County.
