Ex-guard pleads guilty to giving inmate drugs

Posted June 7, 2010

— A former Wake County detention officer was sentenced Monday to 18 to 24 months in prison after pleading guilty to supplying drugs to an inmate.

Timothy Maurice Bullock, 26, of 701 S. Main St. in Holly Springs, pleaded guilty to three counts each of providing a controlled substance to an inmate, selling marijuana, possession with intent to sell and deliver marijuana, delivery of marijuana and conspiracy to sell marijuana.

Bullock brought marijuana, a cell phone and a knife to the jail last spring and gave them to an inmate in exchange for $1,000, authorities said.

He resigned as a detention officer in April 2009.

    18 to 24 months? What a joke. If we are lucky he'll serve a year and be back out again. Weak prison sentences like this do nothing to deter further crime.

    Now he gets to be the inmate. An it should be a very long time for what he did while he was entrusted with guarding the inmates.
