Correction officer guilty of heroin plot

Correction officer guilty of heroin plot 


Associated Press / June 29, 2011
A Massachusetts correction officer has pleaded guilty to attempting to smuggle heroin to sell to inmates at a medium-security prison. Ronald McGinn Jr., 40, of Bridgewater entered the plea in federal court yesterday to possession of heroin with intent to distribute at MCI-Norfolk. Federal prosecutors say McGinn sent text messages and discussed with an undercover FBI agent the amounts he would smuggle into the prison and fees he would charge. He was arrested in April with about 29 grams of heroin. McGinn faces up to 20 years in prison at sentencing set for Sept. 27.
