A former Miss Kentucky appears set to go from beauty contest stages to a prison cell after she was indicted earlier this month for trying to smuggle drugs into a Lima, Ohio prison.
On May 26th, 28 year old Kia B. Hampton of Louisville, Kentucky, was busted trying to smuggle 2.82 grams of marijuana in the Allen-Oakwood Correctional Institution.
Hampton was at the prison to visit Jeremy Kelly, who is serving a four-year sentence for two drug trafficking charges. Officials got a body cavity search warrant for Hampton after listening to a recorded phone call, according to an affidavit.
When she arrived at the prison, Hampton was greeted by officials who had a warrant and read her Miranda rights. While she was talking to them, a balloon containing pot fell down her pant leg. She faces a maximum sentence of three years.
