Woman Booked For Smuggling Gun In ‘Intimate Area’

JOLIET, Ill. (CBS) — A woman is charged with trying to smuggle a gun into Stateville prison in Joliet by placing it in what authorities have euphemistically called her “intimate area.”

Aisha N. McClinton, 33, was booked into the Will County Jail last week as part of her conviction on weapons charges.

On March 14, 2010, police allege McClinton was arriving at Stateville Correctional Center in Joliet to visit a man serving a life sentence for murder, when she refused to allow police to search her car.

After McClinton changed her mind, one officer found cannabis under her seat, while another saw something else.

While court records say the officer saw a 9mm handgun come from McClinton’s waistband, police report the firearm appeared to have been concealed in an “intimate area” of her anatomy. No reports have been more specific.

McClinton has been sentenced to 120 days in jail and two years of probation.

  • "white honkey"

    You folks who always cry “racism” are probably the first ones to practice it yourselves. Your double-standard never ceases to amaze me. You say “That ain’t me don’t judge all of us by what that person did” but you blame ALL White people for your problems when a lot of your problems you cause yourselves. YOU’RE the ones who are acting violently and commiting the crimes. Yes,there is crime commited by White people too,just NOT AS MUCH. Have you folks EVER thought about the fact that it’s YOUR behavior that is the basis for lots of suspicion? It just makes it bad for all of the HONEST HARD WORKING LAW ABIDING Black people who are sadly steriotyped becayse YOU don’t know how to act!!!! Quit acting the fool and THEN you’ll get respect. Respect is something to be earned not demanded! Who’s gonna respect CRIMINALS????

    In what alternate universe does a paradox such as this exist “white honkey”?

  • Centurion

    This gives CONCEALED Carry a bad bad bad stigma. Actually, it could give concealed carry a bad aroma. I wonder if she put any CLP on the gun to prevent rust?

  • cracker jack

    How could it possibly been inside her fun factory if they keep saying police saw it coming from her waist band? Did she shove her hand in her pants and pull it out? Being “in” an area and being “inside” an area is 2 different thing.

  • Kenneth E. Jr Everson

    This is not about race. This is about being STUPID and breaking the LAW. Dope and a Gun going into a prison. Throw the book at whoever does something like this no matter what the race. 5 years federal prison no exceptions. There is no excuse for being that bold and stupid.
