An inmate of the Federal Correctional Institution Greenville has been sentenced for Possession of Contraband by a Federal Inmate. 27-year-old Gregory Mason was sentenced to a term of 8 months, which must be served in addition to his current sentence, fined $100, and ordered to pay a $100 special assessment. Mason has been held without bond since his arraignment on August 13, 2015.
The charge arose when, on December 20, 2014, an officer monitoring the visiting room at FCI-Greenville observed Mason acting suspiciously. Mason was immediately placed in a dry cell after his visit ended, during which it was discovered swallowed four balloons containing marijuana.
The case was investigated by the Bureau of Prisons’ Special Investigation Section.
