June 13, 2013

Orlando, Florida - U.S. Attorney Robert E. O'Neill announces that a federal jury found Scott Michael Patrick (48) guilty of assault resulting in serious bodily injury. He faces a maximum penalty of ten years in federal prison. His sentencing hearing is scheduled for September 19, 2013. Patrick was indicted on October 6, 2010.

According to evidence presented at trial, Patrick, who was an inmate at the Federal Correctional Complex in Coleman, Florida, carried out a plan to viciously attack a fellow inmate. On February 3, 2007, Patrick went to the victim's assigned unit. Patrick then began shadow boxing and stretching inside of another inmate's cell. After the victim walked past the cell, Patrick and another inmate began brutally beating the victim. A third inmate joined in the fight and stabbed the victim six times while Patrick continued to strike the victim until he collapsed to the floor, smacking his head against a metal kick plate. The victim died as a result of the attack.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. It is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorneys Vincent Citro and James Mandolfo.
