Woman Jailed For Smuggling Drugs Into Prison

A woman from Southampton has been jailed for 18 months or smuggling crack cocaine and a mobile phone into HMP Guys Marsh in Shaftesbury.

Clare Paull, 27, pleaded guilty to two counts of conveying a prohibited article into the prison at Dorchester Crown Court on Wednesday 17 July 2013. She was sentenced on Monday 30 September 2013 at the same court.

The court heard how on Saturday 20 October 2012 Paull entered the prison as a visitor with the items concealed upon her. They were discovered when she was subjected to a routine search.

Detective Constable Simon Beare, of Weymouth CID, said:

“This conviction and sentence sends a clear message that these crimes are not acceptable and will not be tolerated.

“Dorset Police, in partnership with HM Prison Service, are committed to stamping out this type of offending. We will continue to work closely together to bring offenders to justice.”

Governor Andy Graham, of HMP Guys Marsh, said:

“I would like to acknowledge the hard work, dedication and collaboration between Her Majesty’s Prison Service, Dorset Police and the Crown Prosecution Service in securing this successful prosecution.

“This sentence highlights the seriousness of this crime and offenders will be prosecuted.

“All agencies will strive to work together to keep drugs out of prison, and maintain our zero tolerance approach to those who attempt to create disorder within our prison establishments.”
