Courier Staff Report

A Scottsburg woman who pleaded guilty to planting drugs inside the Jefferson County Courthouse elevator for an inmate will serve two years on community corrections.
Jessica D. Daily, 32, of Scottsburg, was arrested in August 2011 after the jail commander found pills and marijuana wrapped in black electrical tape on a handrail in the elevator.
On Tuesday, Daily entered an agreement in Circuit Court pleading guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit trafficking with an inmate, a Class C felony. She was sentenced to two years of community corrections and four years of probation.
With the plea deal, the prosecutor's office agreed to dropped all other charges, which included attempted trafficking with an inmate, a Class C felony; possession of a controlled substance, a Class D felony; and possession or marijuana, a Class A misdemeanor.
Special prosecutor Nancy Jacobs handled the case because Jefferson County Prosecutor Chad Lewis had represented Daily in a previous case.
