BALTIMORE (AP) - A correctional officer and an inmate have been sentenced for their roles in a vast drug-smuggling operation at the Baltimore City Detention Center.

Twenty-three-year-old Taryn Kirkland of Baltimore, a correctional officer, was sentenced to 42 months in prison. Twenty-four-year-old Steven Loney, the inmate, was sentenced to nine years in prison. The two were sentenced Tuesday in federal court in Baltimore. They both had pleaded guilty to racketeering conspiracy.

According to their plea agreements, Kirkland frequently smuggled contraband, including marijuana and prescription pills, into BCDC on Loney’s behalf.
