A Los Angeles deputy was sentenced to two years in jail Monday after attempting to smuggle a heroin-filled burrito to a jail inmate.
Former deputy, Henry Marin, 27, pleaded no contest to the charges of the smuggling. As part of a plea deal, Marin was sentenced to two years in prison as opposed to three and the conspiracy charges were dropped.
According to a Los Angeles County Grand Jury indictment, Marin allegedly was conspiring with an undercover investigator regarding brining the drug-filled food item to the inmate locked up at Airport Branch Courthouse located in Los Angeles in February of 2010.
He later told authorities that he planned to inspect the burrito before giving it to the inmate and claimed to be unaware of the drugs inside.
