(Stillwater) –  A prison inmate has been ordered to appear in court Feb. 1 on a charge of possessing marijuana in the Cimarron Correctional Facility in Cushing — that was allegedly delivered to him by his mother.

    Robert Lee Brown, 25, who has been transferred to Mack Alford Correctional Center in Stringtown, could be given an additional 20-year sentence if convicted of having the illegal drug in the Cushing prison.

    His mother, Susan Leann Gruenwald, 46, of Barnsdall, could be given a sentence of two years to life in prison if convicted of delivering marijuana to him at the Cushing prison. Although she was charged in October, Gruenwald has not been arrested or appeared in court, records show.

    Cushing Police Officer Matthew Piatt was sent to the Cimarron Correctional Facility on Sept. 26 “in reference to a visitor bringing in contraband,” according to his affidavit.

    Senior Correctional Officer Chase Wright “said that a visitor named Susan Leann Gruenwald was observed on video passing a package to her son, Inmate Robert Brown,” Piatt alleged in his affidavit.

    Wright said that the package contained a green leafy substance and was recovered on inmate Brown, the affidavit alleged. The substance was field-tested as marijuana, the Cushing officer wrote in his affidavit.

    Gruenwald told the Cushing officer that she went to Tulsa and received a package wrapped in black electrical tape from another inmate’s visitor, the affidavit alleged.

    “Gruenwald stated that she placed the package in her bra area before entering the visitation area at the Cimarron Correctional Facility,” the affidavit alleged.

    The inmate told the Cushing officer that his mother went to Tulsa “where she picked up a package of ‘weed’ to bring to him,” the affidavit alleged.

    “Brown stated that he owed the marijuana to another inmate to clear a debt. Brown said the debt was for his previous methamphetamine purchases,” the affidavit alleged.

    According to state Department of Corrections records, Brown was charged with second-degree burglary in Osage County in 2003 and originally given a deferred sentence, which was changed to a three-year suspended sentence in 2005.

    While he was on probation for that burglary, he was convicted of escaping from the Department of Corrections in 2007 and grand larceny in 2008, both in Osage County, for which he received two consecutive two-year prison terms, DOC records show.

    Brown is slated to be considered for parole in September, according to DOC records.
