CLARKSBURG, W.Va. (AP) - Federal authorities say a former worker at a federal prison in West Virginia has been sentenced to eight months behind bars for providing an inmate with marijuana.

According to prosecutors, 32-year-old Cody Tyler Layman of Terra Alta, West Virginia, pleaded guilty in April to a single charge from an incident last August at the U.S. Penitentiary Hazelton.

Layman resigned from his position at the prison during the investigation.

U.S. District Judge Irene Keeley imposed the sentence.
