State Prison Inmate Sentenced in Clearfield County


CLEARFIELD – An inmate of a state prison facility in Clearfield County has been sentenced to an additional two-to-six years on drug charges.

According to court documents, 30-year-old Cody Ewan pleaded guilty this week to his involvement in trying to smuggle drugs into SCI-Houtzdale. Ewan was accused of conspiring with his girlfriend, 35-year-old Kayla Schill, to bring hundreds of paper strips containing contraband into the prison during visits, and passing the drugs to him.

Prison officials became aware of the plan when they intercepted emails between Ewan and Schill, and then drug strips were allegedly found in Schill’s possession during a prison visit in March 2023.

Multiple charges are also pending against Schill, but she is currently free on $50,000 bail.
