MARIANNA, Fla. (AP) -- Two guards are charged with smuggling cell phones, tobacco, synthetic marijuana and other contraband into a federal prison in Jackson County.

Prosecutors on Monday announced the indictments of 28-year-old Steven M. Smith and 30-year-old Mary S. Summers.

They were charged with bribery and smuggling contraband into the Federal Correctional Institution at Marianna in exchange for cash and stored-value cards from inmates.

If convicted each could face up to 15 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

Prosecutors did not know if they had lawyers and none were listed in court records.

    Here yall go to school to learn how to be guards. Then yall get jobs. But it's not good enough for yall, yall have to lose your jobs for doing something stupid. Well I guess yall liked the prisoners positions so much yall decided to be one to. Good luck on that.
