Ex-guards Given Jail Time for Smuggling Pot into Prison

ASHVILLE, Ala. (AP) - Two former state prison guards will serve split sentences following their convictions for promoting prison contraband.

A circuit judge Monday ordered 34-year-old Tommie Borden of Gadsden and 27-year-old Mark Clark of Anniston to each serve two years behind bars and another 3 years on probation.

Borden and Clark were caught smuggling pot into the St. Clair Correctional Facility in December 2006.

Clark had been employed as a prison guard for three years while Borden had worked in the corrections system for about a year.

They will begin serving their sentences on September 2.

    Gee! What a surprise! Pot in prison, like "who knew? right?!" -- You can't be serious? --- Maybe you should check Houston County Jail in Dothan Alabama -- all forms of corruption in and out of courthouse/jail house there
