Understanding IC 35-44.1-3-6: Trafficking with an Inmate Outside a Facility Defining the Offense

IC 35-44.1-3-6 addresses the crime of trafficking with an inmate outside a facility. This statute defines "contraband" as:

  1. Alcohol

  2. Cigarettes or tobacco products

  3. Controlled substances

  4. Items that may be used as weapons

Trafficking with an inmate outside a facility refers to delivering contraband to an inmate outside a penal facility or a juvenile facility on a full-time basis as a result of a conviction or juvenile adjudication. However, it's important to note that this definition does not include various exceptions, such as pretrial detainees, individuals serving intermittent terms, and those in specific alternative programs.


The penalties for trafficking with an inmate outside a facility depend on the type of contraband involved. If the contraband falls under subsection (a)(3) (controlled substances), the offense is classified as a Level 6 felony. If the contraband falls under subsection (a)(4) (items that may be used as weapons), the offense is elevated to a Level 5 felony. In other cases, it is considered a Class A misdemeanor.
