GREENCASTLE -- A Putnamville Correctional Facility inmate has had 10 more years tacked on to a five-year sentence he was serving.
Putnam County Circuit Court Judge Matthew Headley ordered that Charles E. Archey, 23, be sentenced to 10 years on a Class B felony dealing in a schedule I controlled substance charge, and that those 10 years be served consecutively to Archey's original sentence
Archey was already in prison for armed robbery, carrying a handgun without a license, resisting law enforcement and residential entry charges out of Marion County when he was charged in January with trafficking drugs and other contraband with Shakeya R. Webb, 20, of Indianapolis.
In exchange for Archey's guilty plea, a charge of Class D felony possession of a controlled substance against him was dropped.
Court records said prison officials searched Archey after he had a visit with Webb in April, and found him to be in possession of heroin and a cell phone. Webb was caught on videotape passing the contraband to Archey.
Archey was just shy of a year away from being released from prison when he was sentenced on the new charge. He would have been released on Sept. 3, 2010. The new charge also negated any good time credit he had accumulated.
Archey has been in prison since March 14, 2007.
Webb is slated to be in court for sentencing on Aug. 13. 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.
