Hazelton Inmate Sentenced for Assaulting Another Prisoner

Prison Bars

An inmate at a federal prison in Hazelton has been sentenced to an additional five years and 10 months behind bars for assaulting another prisoner.

U.S. Attorney William J. Ihlenfeld II says 29-year-old Deonte Spicer was sentenced in federal court in Clarksburg last week for assault with a dangerous weapon with intent to do bodily harm.

Spicer pleaded guilty in October to stabbing another inmate multiple times with a handmade weapon during a fight in February 2015.
