Hamilton County Corrections Officer fired for allegedly distributing drugs in jail
The Hamilton County Sheriff's Office continues to investigate a case of drug smuggling at the Justice Center following the arrest and firing of one of its own.
Twenty-two-year-old Jason Robinson was arrested over the weekend after investigators found three quarters of a pound of pot. That's a lot, according to detectives, to be inside a jail.
Some were surprised at who did it. Robinson was president of his recruit class. He's charged with illegal conveyance, a third-degree felony.
Sheriff Charmaine McGuffey says she doesn't believe the April 8 incident was the only time Robinson has brought drugs into the jail. Another deputy is apparently under investigation for selling tobacco inside the Justice Center.
