A Kansas City, Kan., woman has been sentenced to probation for trafficking contraband into the Lansing Correctional Facility.
Pprincess Adorable Williams, 31, was sentenced Friday in Leavenworth County District Court.
The crime occurred Feb. 11. The contraband was a number of pills suspected of being PCP and rolling papers, according to County Attorney Todd Thompson.
Williams reportedly was trying to take the items to her husband at the prison.
She pleaded guilty to one count of trafficking contraband in a correctional institution June 22, according to court records.
Under state sentencing guidelines, the case was classified as “presumptive prison.”
Her attorney argued for a departure from this sentence.
District Judge Gunnar Sundby said Friday that he normally follows the sentencing guidelines when a case is considered “presumptive prison.”
But he said Williams’ case was “presumptive prison” only because of a conviction from six years earlier. And he said there were some mitigating factors related to that conviction.
The judge said it appeared Williams also had a treatment plan to deal with substance abuse issues. Sundby also said the defendant already had served some time in jail in the case.
Sundby suspended a 34-month prison sentence and placed Williams on probation for 18 months.
Thompson said the prosecution had argued for a prison sentence for Williams.
