A corrections officer accused of trying to smuggle in marijuana to an inmate at a southern New Jersey prison is now facing a lengthy prison term himself. 

Aikeem Williams was convicted Wednesday on official misconduct and drug possession charges. He faces up to 10 years in prison when he's sentenced Sept. 28.  Cumberland County prosecutors say Williams, who had served at South Woods State Prison in Bridgeton since January 2006, brought about four ounces of marijuana to work on Nov. 25, 2009. But the drugs were intercepted by authorities.
