Inmate At Lewisburg Federal Prison Sentenced To An Additional Seven Years In Prison For Assault On Correctional Officer

WILLIAMSPORT - The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced that a federal inmate at the United States Penitentiary at Lewisburg was sentenced yesterday by U.S. District Court Judge Matthew W. Brann in Williamsport, to serve an additional seven years in prison for assaulting a federal correctional officer.

 

According to United States Attorney David J. Freed, Julious Bullock, age 31, formerly of North Carolina, previously admitted to the charge of assault on a correctional officer.  The charge stems from an incident on August 2, 2016, in which Bullock “head-butted” a correctional officer at the United States Penitentiary at Lewisburg.

 

Bullock was previously indicted by a federal grand jury in September 2016, on the assault charge.  He is presently serving a sentence of 120 months in prison on the charge of being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm. That offense occurred in 2010 in Raleigh, North Carolina.  The sentence which Bullock 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.
