Marion man found guilty of trading drugs for candy bars in jail

CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

A Marion man being held in the Linn County jail after being convicted on federal charges has been found guilty of trading oxycodone for candy bars.

Court officials say that 63-year-old Donald Washburn began trading his oxycodone to another inmate for candy bars in February while awaiting sentencing on federal convictions of fraud, money laundering and making false statements to a U.S. Probation officer.

Officials say that Washburn was prohibited from ordering candy from the jail commissary.

A sentencing date has not been set, but Washburn faces up to 20-years in prison, a $1 million fine and at least three years of supervised release following any prison time.
