 “The importation of drugs into
a prison by anyone is a serious 
crime. Importation by a guard
is worse.”

 Justice Wayne Dymond

A former prison guard will spend the next  16 months on the other side of prison bars beginning today.

32 year-old Ed Taylor was sentenced yesterday  in relation to the possession of narcotics for the purpose of trafficking. He was caught with  oxycodone, Clonazepam and morphine. The Crown says he used his job as a prison guard  as a distribution point.

He was sentenced to 16 months at the spa down by the lake and 18 months’ probation.He worked for over a decade at Her Majesty s Penitentiary in St. John's.

I can only imagine the rough time he is going to receive from his new peers.

One can only hope he treated them well.
