Prison OffensesElements18 U.S.C. § 1792
"Mutiny or Riot"
Resisting a federal warden or subordinate officer in the free and
lawful exercise of his or her authority constitutes a mutiny. See
United States v. Bryson, 423 F.2d 724 (4th Cir. 1970). Evidence of
inmate's substantial, determined, and violent rebellion against lawful
prison officers was sufficient to sustain their convictions for mutiny, even
though they and the other inmates involved were locked in their cells.
States v. Bey, 667 F.2d 7, 10 (5th Cir. 1982).|
