Man Apologizes for Throwing Football Loaded with Drugs into Prison

A Michigan man is apologizing for trying to throw a football loaded with drugs and cellphones into a state prison yard.

Christen D. Moore on Wednesday called the June attempt “a thoughtless and immature decision.” The Jackson Citizen Patriot reports the 22-year-old’s comments came during his sentencing hearing, where he got 17 to 60 months on two counts of furnishing contraband to a prisoner.

Jackson County Circuit Judge Susan Beebe says Moore, who was on probation at the time for home invasion, knows “all about the type of havoc this type of contraband can have on the prison system.”

Investigators say the throw at G. Robert Cotton Correctional Facility fell short, with the football landing between two fences. Police say the ball contained marijuana, suspected heroin and three cellphones.
