HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ A 22-year-old inmate at a federal prison in Danbury has been sentenced to nearly three more years of prison time for assaulting another inmate with a sock stuffed with two padlocks.
A judge in Hartford sentenced Patricia Brown on Thursday to an additional two years and seven months in prison for the May 2012 attack that left her fellow inmate in need of three stitches to her right ear. She pleaded guilty in January to assault with a dangerous weapon.
Brown is currently serving a 30-year sentence after being convicted of murder in 2009 in Minnesota.
The case was investigated by the FBI.
