Smuggling cell phones to inmates now a misdemeanor in Calif

The California State Senate on Monday unanimously passed SB525, which would make it a misdemeanor to deliver a cell phone or other wireless communication device to an inmate. It also would criminalize possessing such a device with the intention of giving it to a prisoner. Violators face fines of up to $5,000.
