FORT EDWARD — A Utica woman who fled Washington County after being arrested on a prison contraband charge is headed to prison herself.

Kristel Lipsett, 21, pleaded guilty to felony bail jumping for refusing to come back to court after her February arrest for trying to smuggle drugs into one of the state prisons in Fort Ann.

State Police arrested her on the bail jumping charge last month after police in the Utica area located her.

She faces a 1- to 3-year prison term when sentenced by Washington County Judge Kelly McKeighan.
