HARRISBURG – The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced today that Addie Reid, age 27, of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, was sentenced to 12 months’ imprisonment by United States District Court Judge Sylvia Rambo for accepting a bribe in exchange for smuggling a cellphone into the Dauphin County Prison.

According to United States Attorney Gerard M. Karam, Reid was a correctional officer at the Dauphin County Prison when caught in an undercover sting operation conducted by local and federal law enforcement. On September 13, 2019, Reid accepted $2,000 in cash from an undercover police officer who was purportedly a family member of an inmate who wanted a cellular telephone smuggled into the prison. After he accepted the cash, police arrested Reid.  On April 11, 2022, Reid entered a guilty plea to the federal offense of using a means in interstate communication to commit the crime of bribery.

The case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Dauphin County District Attorney’s Office. Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael Consiglio is prosecuting the case.
