A former guard at the Reeves County Detention Center faces up to 15 years in prison in a bribery and smuggled iPods investigation. Prosecutors in Midland say 28-year-old Katherin Elizabeth Terry of Pecos on Tuesday pleaded guilty to accepting bribes.

Terry acknowledged that three times during 2008 she accepted money from the mother of an inmate, totaling $500, in exchange for agreeing to smuggle banned iPods to the prisoner.

A federal judge in March will sentence Terry, who also faces a fine of up to $250,000.
