2 years for former Md. prison worker

A former correctional officer who funneled drugs and cell phones to an inmate will be experiencing prison life from the other side.

Twenty-one-year-old Lynae Chapman was sentenced Monday to two years in prison. She pleaded guilty to six charges, including conspiracy to distribute marijuana and professional misconduct in office.

Chapman was charged in October after authorities searched a cell at the Baltimore city jail and found drugs and a cell phone that contained her DNA.

Her attorney, Warren Brown, says Chapman is a good person who fell in love with the wrong man.

Authorities say the inmate, Ray Lee, is a member of the Black Guerrilla Family prison gang.

Brown says many correctional officers have gotten involved with the gang.
