Ex-NJ Prison Guard Sentenced For Contraband Smuggling

A former corrections officer who was part in a network that smuggled prepaid cellphones and drugs into a northern New Jersey prison is now an inmate himself.

Luis Roman (NJ Attorney General's Office)

Forty-eight-year-old Luis Roman of Woodbridge Township was sentenced Monday to five years in state prison without the possibility of parole. He had pleaded guilty earlier this year to official misconduct.

Roman, who worked at Northern State Prison, admitted that he repeatedly smuggled cell phones and drugs into the prison for a network of inmates who solicited customers and distributed the drugs and cell phones. He was among more than 30 people who allegedly were involved in the scheme.
