Lexington woman gets prison time after bringing drugs into JBCC

McALESTER — A Lexington woman was sentenced to do time in prison after being arrested and charged for bringing drugs and cell phone into the Jackie Brannon Correctional Center in McAlester.

Marcia King, 47, of Lexington, Okla., pleaded guilty Oct. 24 in Pittsburg County District Court to a charge of unlawful possession of a controlled drug (methamphetamine) with intent to distribute. She was fined $800 and sentenced to serve six years in the custody of the Oklahoma Department of Corrections. Her total sentence was 10 years, with the last four years suspended.

Four other drug-related felony charges were dismissed in the plea bargain agreement between King and the District 18 District Attorney’s Office.

According to court records, authorities witnessed a vehicle enter the Jackie Brannon Correctional Center property on Dec. 5, 2012.

“A female passenger, later identified as Marcia Sherene King, had stuck her arm out the window, waived a brown paper bag around, tossed it toward the trash can, then left the prison property,” a police affidavit states.

Police waited and intercepted a JBCC inmate who picked up the package, according to court records. Authorities inventoried the contents of the brown bag and found five cell phones with charges and various sorts of drugs.
