Inmate At Lewisburg Federal Prison Sentenced To An Additional Nine Years In Prison For Assaults On Other Inmates

WILLIAMSPORT - The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced today that Kyle Stevens, age 27, formerly of Baltimore, Maryland, and currently a federal inmate at the United States Penitentiary at Lewisburg, was sentenced on October 31, 2017, by U.S. District Court Judge Matthew W. Brann, to serve an additional 110 months in prison for two separate assaults on other inmates with a homemade weapon.  


According to United States Attorney Bruce D. Brandler, Stevens previously admitted to two counts of assault with a dangerous weapon.  The charges stem from separate incidents in February 2015 and February 2016 in which Stevens assaulted other inmates with a sharpened piece of metal, commonly known as a “shank.”  


Stevens was previously indicted by a federal grand jury in July 2016, on the assault charges.  He is presently serving a sentence of 32 years in prison on the charge of possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking conspiracy resulting in death.  That offense occurred in 2013 in Baltimore, Maryland.  The sentence which Stevens received yesterday will be served in addition to that sentence.

The investigation was conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Bureau of Prisons Special Investigative Service.  Assistant United States Attorney Robert J. O’Hara prosecuted the case.
