(Juneau, WI) -- A former Wisconsin correctional officer is scheduled to make a Dodge County Circuit Court appearance next month to face drug charges.

Prosecutors say 29-year-old Jeffery Groleau smuggled drugs into the Waupun Correctional Institution while he worked there. If he's convicted on all the charges he faces he could receive a sentence of 30 years in prison. Groleau told investigators he would meet a woman in local stores and she would give him cell phones and drugs to smuggle into the facility. He was given heroin as payment. The woman committed suicide shortly after a search warrant was executed on her property.
