  1. Promoting prison contraband in the first degree is a class D felony, promoting 2nd degree is a class A misdemeanor.


  2. If it is PPC 2d degree, that is an A misdemeanor. Pif it is PPC 1st degree, that is a D felony. The A misdemeanor is punishable by up to a year in jail. The D felony, if there is no prior felony conviction, may carry a sentence of up to 7 years in state prison, so that a minimum of 2 1/3 years would have to be served before eligibility for parole.
