JACKSON, Miss. (WTVA) - A Cleveland man has pleaded guilty to charges in a conspiracy to smuggle heroin into a private prison in Mississippi.

Corbin Miller, 26, entered a guilty plea in U.S. District Court to one count of possession of over 100 grams of heroin with intent to distribute.

Miller was among six people, including one inmate, indicted for attempting to smuggle drugs into the CCA Correctional Facility in Tallahatchie County.

The federal indictment says the drugs were shipped from California to Mississippi in 2016.

Miller will be sentenced in October.
