Tennessee woman charged with murder for meth-laced kiss with inmate – New York Post

A woman was arrested after bringing meth into a state prison. The woman exchanged drugs with an inmate through a kiss, but the exchange ended in death after the inmate swallowed half an ounce of the drug.

Rachel Dollard, 33, was visiting Joshua Brown, who was serving an 11-year sentence for drug-related charges, when she passed him a balloon pellet containing half an ounce of methamphetamine. Brown died a short while later.

Rachal Dollard was taken into custody this weekend on charges of second-degree murder and introduction of contraband into a penal facility. Second-degree murder is a serious crime that can result in 15-60 years in prison.

The Department of Correction said it employs a variety of tools to try to prevent the introduction of contraband into Tennessee prisons, including pat searches and drug detection dogs.

Lee Dodson, Assistant Commissioner for Prison Operations in Tennessee, says drug smugglers will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Body scanners will be installed in all facilities to stop drug smuggling.

Dollard’s mother said her daughter was shocked when deputies arrested her on suspicion of murder. Dollard hasn’t been assigned an attorney yet, and her mother said her daughter cared a lot about Josh Brown.
