Inmate Gets More Time for Prison Assault

LAKE CHARLES, La. (AP) - A prison inmate convicted of assaulting two correctional officers has been sentenced to an additional 95 months in prison.
U.S. District Judge Patricia Minaldi also on Thursday ordered 34-year-old Howard Harris to serve three years of supervised released following his prison term.
Harris, an inmate at the federal prison in Oakdale, was
convicted in September of a charge he threw a mix of feces and urine at two guards who were escorting inmates from their cells to the recreation yard, hitting them in the chest and face.
A spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorney's office in Lafayette couldn't immediately say why Harris was imprisoned or how long a sentence he was serving.
