A WOMAN who smuggled drugs and mobile phones into HMP Bullingdon has been warned she could be facing an immediate jail term.

Natalie Kadima, of Mina Terrace, Enfield, London, appeared at Oxford Crown Court yesterday facing two counts of without lawful authority conveying forbidden items into the prison near Bicester.

Prosecutors said that the 28-year old took a quantity of cannabis and two mobile phones into the prison on August 18 last year.

Kadima was caught taking in 23.42g of the class B drug as well as the two banned devices.

She entered guilty pleas to both of the counts yesterday which followed her first appearance at Oxford Magistrates’ Court on March 26.

At the hearing yesterday Kadima’s defence barrister Gordana Austin said that her client, while not under any duress that would provide a legal defence, had experienced some ‘pressure’ to take the items into prison.

She added that they were being brought in for her brother who was a serving prisoner at the time of the offence.

She said: “There is a significant amount of mitigation and she is a person of good character.”

The court also heard that Kadima had suffered family issues since the offending first came to light.

After admitted smuggling the devices presiding Judge Nigel Daly ordered that a pre-sentence report be prepared ahead of her final sentencing date.

He said: “You have today pleaded guilty to two offences involving taking drugs and telephones into Bullingdon prison.

“As I have said you are in danger of an immediate custodial penalty but it is right and proper that I explore your background.

“You are a person of good character and I understand what has been said to me.

“I am going to adjourn your sentencing for reports, it is in your interest to co-operate with the maker of the pre-sentence report.”

Kadina was released on bail to await her final sentencing which will be held at the same court on May 16.

The plea hearing comes after a damning report was released in December by the Independent Monitoring Board.

That study found that a rise in violence and drug misuse at Oxfordshire’s main prison was leading to safety concerns for both staff and prisoners there, and showed a rise in drug finds according to year-on-year data.
