Inmate Sentenced for Having Mom Smuggle Drugs Into Prison Inside Potato Chips Bag During Visit at Sheridan


A 21-year-old Portland man who convinced his mother to smuggle drugs into prison during a visit at the federal prison in Sheridan was sentenced Friday to six more months in custody.

Johnny Hudson’s mother had hid eight balloons of spice, a synthetic cannabinoid, inside a potato chips bag that she shared with her son during a prison visit on April 8, 2018, according to prosecutors.

When Hudson reached into the bag and was struggling to swallow, prison guards noticed and began to investigate.
