ALBION – Two people who admitted to crimes while they were inmates at Albion Correctional Facility will be spending more time in prison after they were sentenced today in Orleans County Court.

Robin Miller, an inmate at the women’s prison, was sentenced to an additional 1 ½ to 3 years in prison for aggravated harassment of an employee.

She admitted to throwing urine at a corrections officer. She was scheduled to be released next year.

Najah Fields, a former inmate at the Albion Correctional Facility, was sentenced to 1 ½ to 3 years for promoting prison contraband. She allegedly had a Syracuse woman bring Suboxone and pills to the prison.

Fields was released from Albion Correctional last Dec. 28. Her attorney, David Wade, said Fields has struggled with drug addiction “her entire life.”

Fields and the Syracuse woman both showed “poor judgement,” trying to bring the Suboxone and pills into the facility, Wade said.

Sanford Church, the County Court judge, said shock incarceration may be an option for Fields. That will be up to the state corrections system.
