A Lincoln inmate's wife has been fined for trying to smuggle pot to him in prison.
According to reports Lakeisha Davis, of Omaha, pleaded no contest Tuesday to a misdemeanor charge of attempt to convey an article to an inmate. A Lancaster county judge fined her $500.
Davis was originally charged with delivering or attempting to deliver contraband.
An arrest warrant affidavit says prison guards interrupted a January visit by Davis to Michael Benson. The guards suspected Davis passed along a bag of marijuana to Benson.
Benson is in prison on drug and theft charges.
