Prisoner At Fci Danbury Charged With Assaulting Another Inmate
Deirdre M. Daly, Acting United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, announced that a federal grand jury sitting in Bridgeport returned an indictment today charging YVONNE DAVIS, 61, 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 DAVIS assaulted the inmate on November 25, 2012.
If convicted, DAVIS faces a maximum term of imprisonment of 10 years and a fine of up to $250,000.
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.
Acting U.S. Attorney Daly 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.
