BENTON, Ill. (AP) - A woman ordered to serve weekends in jail on an impaired-driving conviction is now accused of trying to smuggle banned prescription drugs into the lockup.

The (Carbondale) Southern Illinoisan (https://bit.ly/1ghAdYQ) reports that Franklin County prosecutors have charged 23-year-old Caitlen Haynes of Sesser with bringing contraband into a penal institution and possessing a controlled substance. Both are felonies.

Sheriff Don Jones says Haynes was arrested Friday. Details about the drugs Haynes allegedly tried to smuggle were not immediately released.

Haynes last month pleaded guilty to aggravated driving under the influence and was sentenced to 30 months of probation, along with 20 days of periodic jail time.

Online court records do not show whether she has an attorney.
