An inmate at the federal prison complex at Florence was found guilty today of assaulting an officer with a weapon.
Timothy Young, 52, an inmate at the Administrative Maximum Security institution was found guilty today by a jury on a charge of assault on a federal officer with a deadly or dangerous weapon. The jury trial, heard before U.S. District Judge Marcia S. Krieger, lasted just over two days.
Young is scheduled to be sentenced by Judge Krieger on May 16.
He was indicted last September for an incident that happened in November of 2009.
He was found to have attacked a staff counselor with a sharpened metal instrument, commonly called a shank. He was subdued before he was able to stab the counselor, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office.
