Adrena Rice, a 25-year-old single mother, became the first corrections officer (out of 27!) involved in the Baltimore prison scandal to be sentenced, getting hit with three and a half years in federal prison, nearly the maximum recommended sentence.
According to WJZ, Rice admitted her guilt and voiced her remorse after being sentence, saying her involvement with incarcerated members of the Black Guerrilla Family gang — which included smuggling drugs and cellphones and even sleeping with three of them — ruined her life.
“I know what I did was wrong, I apologize for everything that I did, she said. “I know I made a messed up decision in my life.” It’s heart-wrenching. And to think that there are 26 others who may soon have to reckon with the consequences of their outrageous misbehavior.
