Georgetown – Investigators at the Sussex Correctional Institution (SCI) have arrested Angel Osborne, 43, of Hurlock, Maryland for sending narcotics to her son, Patrick Osborne, an inmate serving time at SCI for unrelated charges, according to Delaware Department of Corrections Spokeswoman Jayme Gravell.
