LAS VEGAS -- The three women accused of bribing a guard to smuggle a cell phones into the prison where accused murderer Ammar Harris is housed, made their first appearance in court Thursday.

Olga Gonzalez was arraigned in Las Vegas Justice Court. Someone posted $37,000 in bail for Gonzalez, but the judge wants to see bank statements or other proof of where the money came from.

Gonzalez, Reann Gadson and Charmaine Simmons are charged with bribing a guard to smuggle several cell phones into High Desert Prison. One of those phones was found in the cell of self-proclaimed pimp Ammar Harris who is awaiting trial for the deaths of three people in Feb. 2013. Another cell phone was also destined for another prisoner, according to the criminal complaint filed against the women.
