Milwaukee Woman Charged With Bringing Illegal Substance Into Fox Lake Correctional

(Fox Lake) A Milwaukee woman accused of bringing an illegal substance into Fox Lake Correctional made her initial appearance in court Monday. Sophia Guarnero is charged with one felony count of Deliver Illegal Articles to an Inmate. On Saturday, correctional staff was made aware of a possible delivery of contraband later that day. A monitored phone conversation between an inmate and Guarnero suggested she was going to bring chicken and waffles as well as an illegal drug. Guarnero was questioned when she arrived and repeatedly denied the accusations but later allegedly admitted her wrong doing. According to the criminal complaint, Guarnero produced a cellophane wrapped object that reportedly contained three small balloons that were filled with marijuana. If convicted, Guarnero faces no more than three-and-a-half years in prison. Signature bond was set at $1,000 and a judge will decide in January if there is enough evidence to order a trial.
