(Stillwater, Okla.) – A Cushing prison visitor accused of bringing an inmate contraband, described as a package containing marijuana and several “SIM” cards for electronic devices, which she allegedly hid in her body, has been ordered to appear in court today with an attorney to represent her on a felony charge.
If convicted of bringing contraband into the Cimarron Correctional Facility, Kimyetta Nichole Hawkins, 34, of Oklahoma City, who was convicted of forgery in Oklahoma County in 1999, could be incarcerated for five years and fined $1,000, court records show.
Cushing Police Officer Jerrod Livergood wrote in an affidavit that he was sent on Nov. 2, 2014, to the prison about a visitor allegedly bringing in a package that was given to an inmate, who is serving a five-year prison sentence for bringing contraband into a penal institution in Hughes County in 2012, state Department of Corrections records show.
An official at the Cushing prison said that when he opened a package taped with black electrical tape, he found a clear baggy containing a green leafy substance and a clear baggy “containing four ScanDisk 8 GB micro cards and six AT&T GO SIM cards,” the affidavit alleged.
A guard said that he saw a condom on the floor in the visitation room next to an inmate, who had a small package taped with black electrical tape between the inmate’s buttocks, the affidavit alleged.
When the visitor was questioned, Hawkins said she was asked by a man named Tommy to bring a package into the prison to the inmate, the affidavit alleged.
“Hawkins said she was given a package that was wrapped with black electrical tape and inside a condom. Hawkins said she was going to get paid money to bring it in, although she did not know how much.
“Hawkins said she inserted the package into her ‘privacy part’ in the front and brought it into the prison,” the affidavit alleged.
Hawkins said she removed it and gave it to the inmate in the visitation area, the affidavit alleged.
“Hawkins said when he (the inmate) tried to remove it from the condom, the condom fell on the floor gaining the guard’s attention,” the affidavit alleged.
At 12:01 p.m. on Nov. 2, 2014, Hawkins was arrested for bringing drugs into a penal institution, the affidavit said.
Hawkins was released on $5,000 bond the following day, court records show.
Hawkins had been placed on five years’ probation in 1999 for second-degree forgery in Oklahoma County, court records show.
The inmate to whom she allegedly delivered the contraband has been in the Cimarron Correctional Facility since October 2012 on a five-year sentence for bringing contraband into a penal institution in Hughes County, DOC records show.
The inmate had previously been given suspended sentences for one count of concealing stolen property and two counts of false personation, all in Oklahoma County in 2009, but when his probation was revoked the following year, he was given a five-year prison term, DOC records show.
