Green, 27, an inmate at the Federal Correctional Institution located in Greenville, Illinois (FCI-Greenville), was sentenced for possession of contraband by a federal inmate.

Green admitted that the weapon was his, stating that he had it for his own protection. Federal inmates are prohibited from possessing weapons.
