(Stillwater, Okla.) – A 21-year-old woman, who admitted bringing methamphetamine into the Cimarron Correctional Facility in Cushing, has completed a regimented inmate discipline (RID) prison boot camp program and been released from custody pending her sentencing on Dec. 5, court records show.
    Jessica Christine Snyder, who now lives in Oklahoma City, had dropped out of high school in the tenth grade, but she attained her GED while in RID, court records show.
    Snyder was originally charged with trafficking methamphetamine, but pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of bringing the drug into the Cushing prison before she was sent to RID, court records show.
    Snyder was 18 when she brought methamphetamine into the Cushing prison on Oct. 4, 2015, on the request of her uncle, who was then an inmate, according to an affidavit by Cushing Police Officer Rachel Hentges.
    Snyder told a Cushing officer that she had visited her uncle 20 to 25 times, and he had asked her in a letter two weeks earlier to bring something into the prison for him, an affidavit said.
    Snyder’s uncle “allegedly told her that if she did this for him, he would tell her how to find her father. Snyder said she agreed because she was desperate for information on her father,” the affidavit said.
    Snyder said that her uncle did not tell her what would be in the package and she did not ask, the affidavit said.
    Snyder said that on the morning of Oct. 4, 2015, two women came to her house to pick her up, but they did not talk to her or introduce themselves, the affidavit said.
    “Snyder stated that she did not engage in any conversation with the women other than when they dropped her off at the prison. Snyder said that the driver told her to call when she left the prison and she would come pick her up. The woman then handed Snyder a package wrapped in black tape,” which she put between her buttocks before entering the prison, the affidavit said.
    Snyder later told a Cushing officer that when she got into the visitation room, her uncle demanded the package, the affidavit said. Snyder said she was afraid of getting caught, but her uncle told her to give it to him, the affidavit said.
    Snyder said she removed the package from the back of her pants and handed it to her uncle under the table, the affidavit said.
    Snyder said she could see her uncle put the package into the back of his pants where it seemed he was inserting it into his anal cavity, the affidavit said.
    “Snyder said that while he was doing this, a prison employee caught them and she was escorted from the visitation room into a conference room,” the affidavit said.
    Her uncle “was placed into a cell alone where he stayed until he eventually passed the package from his anal cavity and it was retrieved by a corrections officer on Oct. 6, 2015,” the affidavit said.
    The package contained a clear baggy with a white crystal-like substance that was identified as methamphetamine and weighed 71.61 grams, the affidavit said.
    According to state Department of Corrections records, Snyder’s uncle was released from prison last April after serving 12 years of a 15-year sentence for armed robbery in Tulsa County in 2005.
