DOVER, Del. (AP/WBOC)- A former Delaware correctional officer charged with smuggling drugs and cellphones to inmates at the maximum security prison in Smyrna in return for bribes has agreed to enter a guilty plea in the case.
    
A federal judge on Wednesday scheduled a change of plea hearing for May 30 for Thomas Nadill Boyce Jr.
    
Boyce and fellow guard Paul Hursey were charged in May of last year with extortion.
    
A third guard, Lorraine Mosley, also was charged last year with smuggling a cellphone to an inmate at the women's prison in New Castle in return for a bribe.
    
Boyce is accused- in court documents- of conspiring with inmates and their associates to smuggle cellphones, heroin, and marijuana into the James T. Vaughn Correctional Center in exchange for money.
