An inmate in upstate New York has received a rather unusual gift from his mother during visiting hours. He has been passed narcotic drugs through a kiss, meant to throw off prison security.
54-year-old Kimberly Margeson, was visiting her son, 30-year-old William Partridge, who was in custody over a weapons charge.
She was caught trying to smuggle Oxycodone pills in the jail by keeping them in her mouth and transferring them to her son.
“Kimberly R. Margeson, age 54 was charged following an investigation into controlled substances being brought into the Yates County Jail.
“Investigation revealed that on January 29th at about 1:00pm Kymberly put Oxycodone pills (a Narcotic) into her mouth and brought them into jail when she visited her son William Partridge,” writes Lt. Todd Satir of the Yates County Sheriff's Department.
The report described how she put two pills “into her mouth and brought them into the jail when she visited her son,” moving them “from her mouth to her sons mouth when she kissed him.”
Margeson and her son have both been charged with promoting prison contraband, a misdemeanor charge. However, she has also been arrested for a felony drug count.
She has attended a hearing in town of Middlesex Court, during which she pleaded not guilty to all charges. She is currently free after posting $2000 (€1,490) bail, while her son remains imprisoned.
“Partridge, who is currently in jail on other charges will be arraigned on this new charge at his next regular Court appearance which will be February 11th at 5pm in the Village of Penn Yan Court,” details Lt. Satir.
