A woman has received an eight-month suspended sentence after admitting to an offence relating to the criminal use of a mobile phone inside a prison.
Kathryn Fraser-Turner, aged 51, had pleaded guilty to conspiracy to transmit, or cause to transmit, any image or sound from inside a prison by electronic communication for simultaneous reception outside a prison between May 10, 2020, and November 25, 2020.
The case related to an inmate at HMP Highpoint in Suffolk who admitted possession of a mobile phone inside a prison, with Fraser-Turner among four other people charged with related offences.
At her sentencing at Northampton Crown Court earlier this month, Fraser-Turner, of Bridgemere Close, Westcroft, Milton Keynes, received a sentence of eight months imprisonment, suspended for 12 months.
She was also ordered to undertake 10 days rehabilitation activity requirement, to undergo mental health treatment for six months, and to pay £500 prosecution costs plus £156 victim surcharge.
