CLINCH VALLEY TIMES St. Paul, Va. Thursday, September 7, 2017 Page 3 Prison inmate receives additional 3 years for plan to bring marijuana into Red Onion State Prison Christopher Frank Stevens, age 29, an inmate at Red Onion State Prison in Wise County, pleaded guilty today to felony con- spiracy to deliver marijua- na to a prisoner. He was sentenced to an additional three years within the cus- tody of the Virginia Department of Corrections for the crime. The plea comes on the day the case was scheduled to be tried by a jury. Evidence showed that between March 1, 2017 and March 5, 2017, Christopher Stevens made various phone calls from Red Onion State Prison to another individual. During the phone calls, Stevens made an agreement by phone with the individual to purchase marijuana and explained how to prepare it for entry into Red Onion State Prison. On March 4, 2017, the Norton City Fire Department and Norton City Police Department were dispatched to a motel in the City of Norton in ref- erence to an activated fire alarm. Upon a check of the building, police detected the odor of marijuana com- ing from a room within the motel. A search of the room revealed that mari- juana was being packaged in small bags for delivery into Red Onion State Prison. The drugs were seized and were not deliv- ered into the prison. Stevens later confessed to the crime. Christopher Stevens is serving an active seven year sentence from 2011 from the City of Portsmouth Circuit Court for robbery, use of a firearm in the commission of a felony, malicious wounding, and attempted robbery of a residence. The sentence imposed today will run consecutive to the other charges. The case was success- fully prosecuted by Commonwealth's Attorney Chuck Slemp and assistant Commonwealth's Attorney Berlin Skeen. Commonwealth's Attorney Chuck Slemp said, "I am thankful for the ongoing efforts of the Virginia Department of Corrections to eradicate contraband from our pris- ons. We hope that this case sends a clear message that we will not tolerate attempts to bring drugs of any kind into our prisons." Slemp also thanked the efforts of the Virginia Department of Corrections, Norton City Fire Department, and the Norton City Police Department in their inves- tigation of the case. Wise County is home to three Virginia Department of Corrections Facilities: Red Onion State Prison in Pound, Wallens Ridge State Prison in Big Stone Gap, and Wise Correctional Unit in Coeburn.
