Federal Inmate Sentenced To Additional Prison Time For Assault On Guard | USAO-MN

ST. PAUL, Minn. – A federal inmate was sentenced today to an additional 18 months in prison followed by three years of supervised release for assaulting a federal prison guard.

According to court documents, on May 29, 2020, Charles Marquis Mitchell, 28, an inmate at the Federal Correctional Institution in Sandstone, Minnesota, obtained and ingested a synthetic drug and began shouting and acting erratically. Mitchell struck one inmate with a closed fist and shoved another inmate into a wall. Mitchell did not comply with the prison guards’ orders to lay on the ground and instead lunged towards them, striking one guard in the head and face with a closed fist.

Acting U.S. Attorney W. Anders Folk for the District of Minnesota made the announcement after U.S. District Judge Susan Richard Nelson sentenced the defendant. The sentence was imposed to run consecutively to the sentence Mitchell is currently serving.

This case was the result of an investigation conducted by the FBI.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Lindsey E. Middlecamp prosecuted the case.
