PELL CITY, Ala. -- The administrative assistant for Alabama football coach Nick Saban used athletic department stationary to recommend probation for a man convicted of smuggling a small amount of marijuana into a state prison.

Glenda Edwards faces possible disciplinary action from the university.

Athletics spokesman Doug Walker said Edwards admitted to using department stationary to write the one-page letter to St. Clair County Circuit Court Judge Charles Robinson.

She was seeking a sentence of probation for former correctional officer Tommie Borden.

Borden and a former prison guard were convicted in June of second-degree promoting prison contraband and received two years in prison.

Walker said Edwards was not available for comment.
