A worker at a Lansing drug testing center admits taking bribes of marijuana and money from convicts and federal defendants to conceal their suspected drug use.
Amanda Winter of Lansing pleaded guilty Wednesday in Grand Rapids federal court to public corruption. Winter worked at Insight Recovery Center, a federal contractor.
She admits taking payments to ignore positive preliminary urine tests. She agrees to help investigators, and prosecutors say they'll tell the sentencing judge of her cooperation. She remains free on bond.
A grand jury indicted Winter Oct. 15. The charge carries up to 15 years' imprisonment and a $250,000 fine.
Messages seeking comment were left Thursday for defense lawyer Britt Cobb.
