Mother, son charged in contraband scheme at SCI

October 30, 2017

A mother and son face charges after police say they conspired to bring contraband into Sussex Correctional Institution.

Prison officials were alerted of a contraband situation when Donna Milam, 57, of Avondale, Pa., mailed her son, Marco Marin, a 35-year-old inmate at SCI, an unspecified, illegal substance in early October, said Jayme Gravell, chief of community relations for the Department of Correction.

Investigators later learned that Milam had a scheduled visit with Marin at which time the mother and son planned to exchange more contraband, Gravell said.

Investigators arrested the two before the exchange and charged them with second-degree conspiracy and promoting prison contraband. Milam was also charged with possession with intent to deliver. She was committed to the Department of Correction in default of $12,000 secured bond.

Marin was also charged with second-degree criminal solicitation and given $10,000 unsecured bond for his latest charges. Marin is currently awaiting trial on unrelated charges, Gravell said.
