Cops: Mother, son exchanged drugs in kiss

A Washington Court House woman is facing felony charges for allegedly transferring drugs to her son in prison via an open-mouthed kiss.

Julianne Robinson, 57, was arraigned on one count of third-degree felonious conveyance of drugs in Madison County Common Pleas Court on Tuesday.

Officials at the London Correctional Institution noticed something was off when reviewing footage of a routine visit between Robinson and her son, an inmate at the prison, last fall.

The two greeted each other with a long kiss on the mouth, an odd action for a mother and son and the most common way drugs are exchanged during visits.

The next time Robinson came to see him, officials confronted her. She allegedly confessed and gave them two balloons of marijuana she intended to give her son, according to assistant county prosecutor Nick Adkins.

Robinson will appear in court again April 27 for her informal pretrial hearing. She was released on bond and is under house arrest.
