Former Montana State Prison corrections officer will be spending time in the big house

A former Montana State Prison corrections officer will be spending time in the big house. A judge sentenced 24-year-old Nicole Dyer to 13 months in the Department of Corrections for sneaking a cell phone to an inmate in June of 2016 while working at the prison in Deer Lodge.
The inmate involved in the contraband con was also sentenced to 13 months for his role in the conspiracy. During sentencing the judge scolded Dyer, saying her actions put staff, inmates and other personnel in the prison in danger. He added that she violated the public trust.
