BANGOR, Maine – A former employee of the Mountain View Youth Development Center in Charleston and the Franklin County Jail in Farmington was sentenced Tuesday in Penobscot County Superior Court to two years with all but six months suspended.

Lori Call, 37, formerly of Charleston pleaded guilty just prior to her sentencing to smuggling contraband into both facilities when she worked at them in 2007 and 2008.

She admitted bringing alcohol and marijuana to the juveniles being held at the Charleston facility and attempting to smuggle a narcotic pill to an inmate in Farmington.

Superior Court Justice Michaela Murphy also sentenced Call to two years of probation after she completes her sentence. Conditions of Call’s probation include no alcohol or drug use, random testing for their use and counseling for mental health issues.

Call, now lives in Middleborough, Mass., with family and her two daughters. She will be allowed to serve her probation in that state. Call is expected to serve four months in the Penobscot County Jail after the two months she was held last year until bail could be arranged are applied to her sentence.

She faced a maximum of five years in prison and a fine of up to $5,000.
