A 24-year-old cadet at Augusta State Medical Prison has been charged after authorities said they discovered she was trying to supply inmates with methamphetamine and marijuana. According to a news release, Lucretia Nicole Davis was in the control room with another cadet and an officer on Thursday when the officer noticed an item on the floor.

Davis picked up the item and threw it into the garbage, saying it was a roach. The officer became suspicious, however. Investigators were called in, the release stated, and a field test found evidence of methamphetamine.

Authorities also found 109.9 grams of marijuana in the control room and 168.4 grams in Davis’ vehicle, the release stated. Officers also found three cellphones and 22 letters to inmates.

Davis was booked into the Richmond County jail Friday on charges of possession of methamphetamine, possession of marijuana, trafficking methamphetamine and trading with convicts without permission.

Prison cadet

I did not know that one could "trade" with inmates if one has "permission". Wonder how that can be??

I do not know what her status was either, of course, the A/C did not flesh out that part. A/C, you are a news paper, that means you have the time to get the story right and complete. It does look like she will be a convicted drug dealer soon. Hope she gets life.

well,

the AC should post all of the information and accurately,of course, but posts should not be full of speculation and judgement calls unless the writer knows the situation at hand personally. How many times do the writers take what is written and make such leaps of inferences, it's ridiculous.

Cadet status

A cadet is someone waiting to attend CO training at the GPSTC in Forsyth GA. They are usually wearing black pants and a white shirt while at the prison since they have not yet been issued their uniform.

Well it didn't take this woman long to figure out how to increase her pay. She should go to prison and see if she can score drugs and contraband from another crooked prison guard.

Yes, a cadet is someone who is currently attending the academy but hasn't graduated yet. They CAN work, on a limited basis; without having graduated.

Cadet

Cadet means officer in training just like when one joins the police force he/she is a cadet first and must complete the necessary training to become a officer.
