LEBANON, OH (AP) — A milk deliveryman has been sentenced to house arrest after he was accused of hiding marijuana, tobacco and cellphones inside milk cartons and smuggling them into an Ohio prison.

Defendant Ray Adams was also ordered by Warren County Judge Robert Peeler to stay away from correctional facilities.

Peeler on Tuesday sentenced Adams to a three-year suspended prison sentence, 120 days on house arrest with electronic monitoring, and probation.

Adam’s lawyer, William Oswall Jr., called the sentence appropriate, saying Adams got desperate after falling on tough financial times.

Adams pleaded guilty in March to illegal conveyance of drugs into a detention facility.

Adams was arrested Jan. 8 after authorities searched the nearly 30,000 half-pint milk cartons he was delivering that day.
