The niece of an inmate who helped a crooked Corrections officer run a “jail shopping network” in the Manhattan Tombs took a plea deal Tuesday, copping to a slew of charges in exchange for three years in prison.
Khalilah Mattocks, 35, was nabbed in June 2015along with corrections Officer Patricia Howard and inmate Tommy Davis for helping import crack cocaine, pills, pot, iPhones, lighters, pliers, tobacco, and other goods into the detention facility.
Mattocks, 35, was caught handing Howard a red shopping bag chock-full of the illicit goods.
She pleaded guilty Tuesday to third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, first-degree promoting prison contraband and fifth-degree conspiracy.
Howard, 44, previously pleaded guilty to charges of attempted sale of a controlled substance and promoting prison contraband in exchange for six years in prison.
The trio was brought down after an uncover agent arranged for Mattocks to unwittingly give Howard a traced iPhone, which authorities tracked from Mattocks’ apartment to Howard’s home and then into the jail through the “Fine My iPhone” function.
Crooked dealings between the veteran corrections officer and inmates appear to have gone on for decades, with cell-phone records showing more than 2,400 calls from perps to Howard between 1993 and 2012.
