Former Jailer Admits To Providing Drugs To Inmates

A former jailer, who has admitted he provided drugs to inmates, will not be spending any time behind bars himself.

Kenneth Kentrolis used to work at the Duplin County jail until an SBI undercover operation found that he was funneling drugs into the jail.

Because he has no prior record, Kentrolis was given just probation, and no active jail time.

    first of all he was convicted of providing inmates with drugs,not recieving money for drugs.the jail is a cashless system. if any money changed hands it would be from the outside.co's do not like other co's that do this because it puts others at risk.he has a very small child and married. was very SHOCKED he done this .but not surprised that it happens in alot correctional facilities.

    Anonymous, the "prison environment" is a society within a society. The prisoners use money at a cashless prison. Gold figure. huh.

    Before you start making blanket statements, find out what Correctional Officers think of their fellow officers who sell drugs/other not allowed items to inmates. I am sure jailors feel the same way. If they will sell drugs to an inmate, they will bring or be blackmailed into bringing in a gun. This puts everyones life in danger! Officers hate these guys!
