A former guard accused of smuggling marijuana into a Pennsylvania prison in his boots may face time behind bars himself. Twenty-five-year-old Matthew Millett of Enola pleaded guilty Tuesday to drug delivery and contraband charges.

Prosecutor John Dailey says Millett made four trips into the State Correctional Institution at Camp Hill during a three-month period in 2007 carrying pot for inmates in his footwear. Sentencing guidelines for the charges call for a six-month county prison term.

Millett says he had a lapse of judgment and asked Cumberland County Judge Kevin Hess for understanding. Millett says he doesn't want to ruin the rest of his life. He faces sentencing in February.
