A woman who hid crack cocaine and cannabis in her bra and tried to smuggle it into Armley jail has avoided being sent to jail.
Tracey Lees, 43, was arrested after prison officers spotted she was so nervous that she was unable to get a £1 coin into the locker to place her personal belongings in at the Leeds jail.
A judge handed Lees a community punishment after hearing she had been threatened and ordered to take the drugs into the jail.
Leeds Crown Court heard she was wearing a bright red tracksuit when she went to visit an inmate on June 7 last year.
She was visibly shaking as she went through the security area and had to be helped to put her belongings into a locker.
Suspicious staff stopped her and she was searched after a drugs dog indicted that she was carrying an illegal substance.
The court heard the crack cocaine had an estimated street value of £174 but if sold inside the prison it would be worth around £1,200.
Lees, of Edge Hall Road, Bradford, pleaded guilty to two offences of taking prohibited drugs into a prison.
Andrew Stranex, mitigating, said Lees had been placed under considerable pressure to take the drugs into a jail.
He said that person had been sat in the public gallery of the court at an earlier hearing and she had received further threatening messages since. Judge Christopher Batty gave Lees a 12-month prison sentence, suspended for 18 months.
She was also placed on a curfew, between 8pm and 7am, for the next four months.
Judge Batty told her: “You should go to prison today because people who take drugs into Armley, or any prison, are meant to go to prison themselves. I am satisfied that you have been used and you have been used by someone far more significant than you.”
