A former Nevada Department of Corrections officer was sentenced to five years probation Wednesday in a scheme to get smartphones into High Desert State Prison.
Derland Blake, 30, pleaded guilty in September to helping smuggle phones, food and alcohol into the prison. The contraband ultimately ended up with Ammar Harris, a self-proclaimed pimp who is facing trial in a Strip shooting that killed three people, and another inmate.
