Mom French-Kisses Son in Jail to Smuggle Drugs

A loving New York mom french-kissed her son in jail -- and then got busted for illegally passing drugs to an inmate.

In an elaborate (and icky) smooching scheme, Kimberly Margeson, 54, allegedly popped two Oxycodone pills into her mouth when she visited her son, William Partridge, at a jail in Yates County, New York, reports the New York Daily News.

During the visit, the affectionate mother appeared to french kiss her 30-year-old son. As the two were locking lips, the mother was allegedly able to transfer the pills from her mouth into her son's mouth.

One can only imagine the tongue gyrations that must've gone on between mother and son to pass the pills along. (Hopefully, GoDaddy does not get any ideas for next year's Super Bowl ad.)

It wasn't reported if it was the length of the kiss or the open-mouthed nature of the mother-son embrace that alerted prison guards. However, suspicious guards checked Partridge's mouth after the visit and discovered the drugs.

Margeson was arrested and charged with a felony drug violation and a misdemeanor count of promoting prison contraband, according to the Daily News. She pleaded not guilty and was released on $2,000 bail.

Partridge remains jailed on a prior alleged weapons offense. He now faces an additional misdemeanor count of promoting prison contraband. It was reported that the two pills were for his personal use.

There are many clever ways outsiders can attempt to pass on drugs to inmates in prison. Some have tried to hide contraband in their hair and clothing. Others have passed along contraband hidden in their body cavities.

With that in mind, thank goodness Kimberly Margeson and William Partridge's alleged drug-delivery scheme stopped with a french kiss. No one wants to picture what would have happened had the two settled on hiding the drugs via another body cavity.
