Steven Paul Anderson pleaded guilty on April 7 in Berkeley County Circuit Court to conspiracy to transport a controlled substance into a jail.

The Journal reports that the 36-year-old Anderson received a one- to five-year sentence on Monday. The sentence will be served consecutive to a two- to 25-year sentence that Anderson is serving for burglary and grand larceny.

Under a plea agreement, four related counts were dismissed.
