PRISONER AT FCI DANBURY CHARGED
WITH ASSAULTING ANOTHER INMATE

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
September 18, 2012

David B. Fein, United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, announced a federal grand jury sitting in Bridgeport returned an indictment today charging PATRICIA A. BROWN, 21, a prisoner at the Federal Correctional Institution (FCI) in Danbury, with using a dangerous weapon to assault another inmate at the facility.

The indictment alleges that BROWN assaulted the inmate on May 4, 2012.

If convicted, BROWN faces a maximum term of imprisonment of 10 years and a fine of up to $250,000.

BROWN is currently serving a 30-year sentence after having been convicted of murder in 2009 in the District of Minnesota.

U.S. Attorney Fein stressed that an indictment is not evidence of guilt.  Charges are only allegations, and the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.

This case is being investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Neeraj N. Patel.
