DALLAS (1080 KRLD) - Jewel Roberto Jefferson got a 40 month sentence for attempting to provide contraband to inmates inside the GEO federal detention facility in San Antonio. 

Last September, he confessed in court to trying to smuggle crystal methamphetamine and heroin to detainees for a thousand dollars. 

He was arrested in November of 2017, right after he took the cash but before he could smuggle the drugs in.

Jefferson will be on probation for three years after he gets out of prison. 

The detainee, 40-year-old Brian Keith Gonzalez man was sentenced late last year to just over five years in prison for his role in the scheme.
