Former Garfield County jailer sentenced

ENID, Okla. — A former Garfield County jailer who pleaded guilty last month to sexual battery and bringing contraband into the jail was sentenced to 90 days in jail, 200 hours of community service and a 10-year deferred sentence Monday morning.

Kevina Guadalupe Abercrombie, 30, entered a blind plea Aug. 21 before District Judge Dennis Hladik to an amended count of conspiracy to commit a felony, originally filed as sexual battery, and two counts of bringing contraband — tobacco and a cellphone — into a jail.

A blind plea means Abercrombie entered a guilty plea with no plea agreement with prosecutors in place.

Hladik ordered a presentencing investigation be conducted, and set sentencing for Monday.

Abercrombie was sentenced to serve 90 days in county jail; serve 200 hours of community service, working at least 20 hours a month upon her release from jail; and complete a 10-year deferred sentence.

She was ordered to report to the jail by 5 p.m. Friday. She also will be under Department of Corrections supervision, with drug and alcohol testing, pay court costs, $100 to the victims compensation fund, a $150 DNA fee and $40 jail costs.

She also received two five-year deferred sentences on each contraband charge.

A Sept. 7, 2012, search of the jail led to the discovery of cellphones and contraband that prompted an investigation, according to an affidavit filed in the case.

Investigators learned of inappropriate relationships between inmates and certain jailers, along with staff members bringing contraband into the facility.

Two other former jailers, Krystal D. Davidson and Staci N. Guffey, already have had their cases resolved and have been sentenced.

Davidson, 34, was sentenced Aug. 13 to three years in Department of Corrections custody, followed by two years probation after her release.

Davidson was charged Oct. 12, 2012, with one count of second-degree rape, or in the alternative, a count of sexual battery, sexual battery and two counts of bringing contraband — cellphones and tobacco — into a jail.

She pleaded guilty June 11 to the alternative count of sexual battery and one count of bringing contraband, a cellphone, into the jail. In turn, a count of sexual battery and the other contraband charge were dropped, as was a misdemeanor charge of squatting. Davidson was charged with that in January after visiting the jail after being banned.

Guffey, 20, pleaded no contest April 18 to an amended charge of conspiracy to commit a felony, originally filed as sexual battery. She also pleaded no contest to misdemeanor charges of bringing contraband — tobacco and a cellphone — into the jail.

She was ordered to serve 90 days in jail and serve a 10-year deferred sentence on the felony charge, pay a $250 fine and court and jail costs. Guffey also received deferred sentences and fines on the contraband charges.
