GREENCASTLE -- A Brazil man has pled guilty to drug dealing.

Seth M. Curtis, 23, will be sentenced March 7 on one count of Class B felony dealing in a narcotic drug.

Curtis worked for Aramark Food Services, the company that provides meals for offenders at the Putnamville Correctional Facility.

Curtis was originally charged with Class A felony dealing in a narcotic drug and Class C felony trafficking with an inmate. Putnam County Circuit Court Judge Matthew Headley has taken under advisement a plea agreement that reduces the A felony to a B felony and dismissed the trafficking charge.

A Class B felony is punishable by up to 20 years in prison.

Curtis was a supervisor with Aramark. An investigation into his possible trafficking activity at Putnamville was launched after prison officials received a tip that Curtis was involved in trafficking with Aryan Brotherhood members at the prison.

Curtis was interviewed on Aug. 25 at the Internal Affairs Office at the Putnamville Correctional Facility. Court records said he admitted to trafficking with an offender, and that he said he had been doing so for about seven months.

Curtis was arrested at the conclusion of the interview, and was taken to the Putnam County Jail. He has been there since his arrest, unable to post a $40,000 cash only bond.

Items Curtis trafficked included cell phones, tobacco, and heroin, court documents said.
