CLARKSBURG, WEST VIRGINIA – Four Federal prisoners received additional jail time as a result of crimes they committed while behind bars.

United States Attorney William J. Ihlenfeld, II, announced that Roberto SOTO, age 51, Gregory PARDO, age 58, Antonio MARTINEZ-PORTA, age 38, and Ahmed JOHNSON, age 42, all inmates at the Federal Correctional Institution at Gilmer, entered pleas of guilty to “Assault with a Dangerous Weapon with Intent to do Bodily Harm.” U.S. District Judge Irene M. Keeley sentenced PARDO, MARTINEZ-PORTA and JOHNSON to 24 months in prison and SOTO to 30 months in prison to run consecutively to their current Federal sentences. The case was handled by Assistant U.S. Attorney David J. Perri for the government.

In a separate matter, Ricardo PIZANA, age 29, an inmate at the Federal Correctional Institution at Morgantown, entered a plea of guilty to “Possession of a Prohibited Object” and was sentenced to three months in prison. The sentence will run consecutively to his current Federal sentence. This case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Shawn A. Morgan.

These cases were investigated by the Special Investigative Services Unit at FCI Gilmer and FCI Morgantown.
