PELL CITY, Ala. (AP) - The administrative assistant for Alabama football coach Nick Saban used athletic department stationary to recommend probation for a man convicted of smuggling a small amount of marijuana into a state prison.
Glenda Edwards faces possible disciplinary action from the university. Athletics spokesman Doug Walker said Edwards admitted to using department stationary to write the one-page letter to St. Clair County Circuit Court Judge Charles Robinson.
She was seeking a sentence of probation for former correctional officer Tommie Borden. Borden and a former prison guard were convicted in June of second-degree promoting prison contraband and received two years in prison.
Walker said Edwards was not available for comment.
