Plea Entered For Smuggling Opioids Into Fox Lake Correctional

11/6/17 – A Milwaukee man was convicted Monday of mailing controlled substances to an inmate at the Fox Lake Correctional Institution. Calvin Brown Jr. pled no contest to one felony count of Delivering Illegal Articles to an Inmate. A second felony charge of Possession with Intent to Deliver Prescriptions was dismissed but read into the record. Last December, Brown mailed strips of the opioid-drug Suboxone to his son who is incarcerated in Fox Lake. Prison phone transcripts monitored the 63-year-old Brown and his son discussing different methods for mailing the drug into the facility. A pre-sentencing investigation was ordered and Brown is due back in court on January 30.
