Two inmates plead guilty to smuggling charges

    Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - Amanda Natkong, 34, and Jerry Active, 30, pled guilty to a scheme to try and bring in heroin, methamphetamine and other drugs to Lemon Creek Correctional Center.

    Eight prisoners were indicted last year.

    Natkong, 34, was convicted of contraband in the first degree and received 80 hours of community service and 30 days in jail.

    Six felony charges were dismissed in the agreement.

    Active was sentenced to five years in prison for his role in the case.  He was already serving a 359-year prison sentence for a pair of murders in Mountain View.  Touch Chea and Sorn Sreap were murdered in 2013.

    Active pled guilty to one count of promotion of contraband while six charges were dismissed.

    The sentences were handed down by Superior Court Judge Amy Mead.
