Defendant's Attorney: Ingrid S. Cronin - FPD

Description: Scranton, PA - Federal Inmate Sentenced To 41 Monthsí Imprisonment For Assaulting Fellow Inmate

United States District Court Judge James M. Munley sentenced James Carson, age 31, to 41 months of imprisonment for assaulting a fellow inmate while incarcerated at the United States Penitentiary Canaan (USP Canaan) in Waymart, Pennsylvania.

According to United States Attorney Bruce D. Brandler, Carson previously pleaded guilty to the assault, during which he stabbed another inmate several times with an improvised knife, causing serious injury. Carson was deemed a career offender, in consideration of his extensive criminal history.

At the time of the assault, Carson was serving a sentence at USP Canaan pursuant to a 2012, federal conviction for being a felon in possession of a sawed-off shotgun. Judge Munley thus ordered that Carsonís new sentence run consecutive to his undischarged term of imprisonment.

The case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and officers from USP Canaan.

Outcome: Defendant was sentenced to 41 months in prison.
