Sentencing set for Putnamville inmate

Friday, July 10, 2009

A Putnamville Correctional Facility inmate will be sentenced on Aug. 6 for charges related to trafficking.

Charles E. Archey, 23, was serving a five-year prison sentence at Putnamville on armed robbery, carrying a handgun without a license, resisting law enforcement and residential entry charges out of Marion County when he was accused of trafficking drugs and other contraband with Shakeya R. Webb, 20, of Indianapolis.

Archey has been charged with Class B felony dealing in a schedule I controlled substance and Class D felony possession of a controlled substance. He pled guilty to the Class B felony, and, if the proposed plea agreement is accepted by the court, Archey will be sentenced to 16 years with 10 executed, while the Class D felony charge will be dropped.

Archey was originally sentenced on March 14, 2007. As a result of the new charge, he lost any accumulated good time credit. He was set to be released from prison on Sept. 3, 2010.

According to court documents, corrections officers at the prison found heroin and a cell phone on Archey when they searched him after he was visited by Webb on April 20, 2008.

Court documents said Webb was caught on videotape passing the contraband to Archey. Webb had left her driver's license at the visitor's check-in station when she left the prison.

In September, according to court records, Webb returned to visit Archey again -- this time presenting a driver's license bearing the name Ashlee A. Jenkins. An intake officer positively identified Webb.

When interviewed, Webb told officers she had obtained another driver's license using her cousin's information. She also admitted that she had passed a cell phone and drugs to Archey during their April 20 visit. She had brought the items in at Archey's behest, she said.

Webb is slated to be in court for a pretrial conference on Thursday. She is charged with Class B felony dealing in a controlled substance, Class C felony trafficking with an inmate and Class D felony identity deception.
