Fci Danbury Prisoner To Serve An Additional 28 Months For Stabbing Another Inmate

Deirdre M. Daly, Acting United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, announced that YVONNE DAVIS, 62, a prisoner at the Federal Correctional Institution (FCI) in Danbury, was sentenced today by Senior U.S. District Judge Warren W. Eginton in Bridgeport to 28 months of imprisonment for assaulting another inmate.

According to court documents and statements made in court, on November 25, 2012, DAVIS stabbed another FCI Danbury inmate with a ballpoint pen that had been broken so as to have a sharp edge on it.  The victim suffered a laceration to the back of her arm that was five to six inches long and one-half inch deep.  The wound required 24 stitches to close.

On August 14, 2013, DAVIS pleaded guilty to one count of assault with a dangerous weapon.

DAVIS is currently serving a 37-month sentence after having been convicted in the Northern District of Texas of being a felon in possession of a firearm.  Judge Eginton ordered DAVIS to begin serving the 28-month prison term after she completes her original sentence.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Neeraj N. Patel.
