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.
