March: Mum Jailed For Sending Son Drugs

A mother has been jailed for sending drugs to her son, who is serving a life sentence at HMP Whitemoor near March in Cambridgeshire.

41 year old Kim Woolley, from Higher Lane in Liverpool, sent a letter with Cannabis worth around £1,250 inside to her son, who is serving the life jail term for murder.

Prison officers seized the letter after a drugs dog picked out the package on August 22 last year. 

Woolley [pictured - above] had tried to conceal the drugs by concealing them between photographs inside a second envelope in the package. 

However, forensic tests confirmed she had sent the letter.

Woolley was arrested when she left the prison after visiting her son at the prison in December 2012.

She was charged with causing another person to bring a prohibited article into/out of prison and was remanded in prison.

Woolley denied the charge but was found guilty following a five-day trial at Peterborough Crown Court yesterday (Tuesday).

She has been jailed for a year.

Detective Constable Emily Clarke said: "Drugs are banned from prisons across the country for obvious reasons.

The prison relies on staff keeping security tight to prevent such contraband entering the jail.

Woolley was caught and I hope the sentence serves as a warning to anyone who considers taking drugs or other forbidden items into prison."
