St Martin, Miss. (The Weekly Vice) - When Stephanie Middleton was lucky enough to be granted house arrest instead of an 8-year prison sentence following her burglary conviction, she did what any smart girl would do.
She began using the United States Postal Service to send drugs to her husband who is currently spending time in jail.
According to the Jackson County Sheriff's Office, Stephanie's husband, 34-year-old Joseph Middleton, is incarcerated at the Jackson County Jail on numerous charges, including grand larceny, possession of stolen property, and burglary.
Investigators say while Mr. Middleton was incarcerated, Mrs. Middleton reportedly sent an undisclosed amount of prescription Fentanyl patches to him through the U.S. Postal Service. Police discovered the patches and an undisclosed amount of morphine at her residence and took her into custody.
Mrs. Middleton was booked into the South Mississippi Correctional Facility and charged with two counts of drug possession and introducing contraband into a jail.
If she is convicted on all drug charges and her home detention is reversed, she will face up to 32 years in prison.
Mr. Middleton remains jailed at the Jackson County Jail. He is also facing a charge of introducing contraband into a jail.
