Ill Inmate Found To Be Body Packing Drugs

   As a result of the incident, charges were issued against Adkins, including possession of a legend drug, possession of Schedule II narcotics, possession of Schedule III narcotics, possession of Schedule IV narcotics, and introducing contraband into a penal facility.

   Adkins will be required to answer the charges through Lawrence County General Sessions Court on May 9, 2011.
