MINNEAPOLIS -- A former nurse at the Federal Medical Center in Rochester has been indicted by a federal grand jury on charges that she provided contraband to an inmate.
A criminal complaint alleges that Catherine Mary Wright, 37, of Eyota, provided prisoner Michael Tate of Rochester with a cellular phone sometime between September and November 2001.
If convicted, Wright faces a maximum penalty of six months in prison and $5,000 fine. Any sentence would be determined by a judge based on federal sentencing guidelines.
A spokesperson for the U.S. Attorney's office said Wright will likely make her first court appearance within the next two weeks. It is unclear if Tate faces additional prison time.
