Tuesday afternoon, he appeared in Cleveland County court with his attorney by his side for his arraignment.

Jeffery Ersland is accused of bringing in contraband to the Joseph Harp Correctional Center, where his father Jerome is currently serving a life sentence for a murder conviction.

Court papers state that back on November 25 during a prison visit with his son, a prison guard "observed Ersland pick something up off a table," and "place it in his left front pocket."

When asked to show what it was, Jerome Erlsand provided the guard with "two transparent transdermal Fentanyl patches", which are said to be "stronger than morphine."

Court papers state the next day, a prison captain "received a telephone call" from Jeffrey Ersland, who admitted he had "brought in the Fentanyl patches to his father, because he had been "complaining of shoulder pain."
