A federal inmate who assaulted a prison guard has been sentenced to an additional 18 months in prison.
Charles Marquis Mitchell, 28, an inmate at the Federal Correctional Institution in Sandstone, punched an inmate and shoved another into a wall, as well as lunging toward prison guards and punching one in the head and face while he was on a synthetic drug, the U.S. Attorney's Office says.
He was sentenced Thursday to an additional 18 months in prison, as well as three years of supervised release for assaulting the prison guard.
This new sentence was imposed to run consecutively to the sentence he is already serving.
According to a previous U.S. Attorney's Office news release, Mitchell was sentenced to nearly four years (46 months) in federal prison in October 2018 after he pleaded guilty to distributing heroin within 1,000 feet of a protected location.
Mitchell, who is from Detroit, Michigan, admitted to distribute heroin near a property belonging to West Virginia University in September 2017.
