FCI-Greenville Inmate Pleads Gulity To Possession Of Contraband By A Federal Inmate

Donald S. Boyce, United States Attorney for the Southern District of Illinois, announced today that on August 17, 2016, Antonio M. Green, 26, pled guilty to an indictment charging him with Possession of Contraband by a Federal Inmate, in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section 1791(a)(2). At the time the offense was committed, Green was an inmate at the Federal Correctional Institution located in Greenville, Illinois. Johnson faces a term of imprisonment of not more than five years, a fine up to $250,000, or both, and a term of supervised release of not more than three (3) years. Green’s sentence must be served consecutively to the sentence he is currently serving. Green’s sentencing has been scheduled for December 2, 2016, in East St. Louis, Illinois. Green has been held without bond since his arraignment on July 11, 2016.

The charge arose when, on April 4, 2016, a correctional officer performed a random shakedown of Green’s cell and found a 7 inch, ice pick-style weapon with a handle in his locker. Green admitted the weapon was his, stating that he had it for his own protection.

The case was investigated by the Bureau of Prisons’ Special Investigation Section. The case is assigned to Assistant United States Attorney Angela Scott.
