A Missouri woman was sentenced to ten years in prison for sneaking a loaded gun into a jail inside her vagina – and the firearm was not found by prison guards for more than two weeks.
Amy Wilhite, 39, agreed to plead guilty to felony delivery or possession of a weapon at a county jail on April 19, and was sentenced to ten years in prison, according to Daily Mail.
Wilhite is presently being housed at the Women’s Eastern Reception, Diagnostic, and Correctional Center in Vandalia, according to Missouri Department of Corrections documents.
Wilhite was arrested on February 14 on drug and gun charges and processed into the Boone County jail.
The firearm, which was fully loaded with 5 rounds, was identified as a North American Arms.22 caliber pistol.
According to KOMU 8, it measures 4 inches long, 2.38 inches tall, and.88 inches wide and weighs 4.6 ounces.
According to the probable cause, Wilhite confessed to having the gun but said she was just storing it for another female inmate. Fellow prisoners in Wilhite’s dwelling unit, on the other hand, ‘all claimed Amy was in possession of the weapon.’
