A man who was found in possession of a mobile phone in prison has been sentenced to a further five months’ imprisonment following a hearing at Oxford Magistrates’ Court.
Abdulrahman Abdulrahman, aged 23, now residing at HMP Guys Marsh, was charged with the offence on 1 February and convicted on Tuesday (28/2).
On 8 November 2022, prison officers at HMP Bullingdon conducted a search of a cell occupied by Abdulrahman.
Officers also conducted a search of Abdulrahman and located and seized a small mobile phone from the pocket of his jogging bottoms.
The phone was examined and data was found which could be attributed to him.
Investigating officer PC Andy Gold of the Prison Crime Team, said: “Mobile phones in prison can have a serious detrimental effect on the safe day-to-day running of prison establishments, putting both prisoners and staff at risk of harm.
“I am pleased that Abdulrahman has been given a further custodial sentence which reflects the seriousness of the offence.”
Note to editors: Abdulrahman was serving a 43-month prison sentence for being concerned in the supply of class A drugs.
The five-month sentence will run consecutively to the original sentence.
