CLARKSBURG, WEST VIRGINIA – Brian Keith Rose, an inmate at FCI Hazelton in Bruceton Mills, West Virginia, was indicted today by a federal grand jury on an assault charge, U.S. Attorney Bill Powell announced.

Rose, age 34, was indicted on one count of “Assault of a Correctional Officer Involving Physical Contact.” Rose is accused of assaulting a federal correctional officer at FCI Hazelton in October 2018.

Rose faces up to eight years incarceration and a fine of up to $250,000. Under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, the actual sentence imposed will be based upon the seriousness of the offenses and the prior criminal history, if any, of the defendant.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Brandon S. Flower is prosecuting the case on behalf of the government. The Bureau of Prisons Special Investigation Services investigated. 

An indictment is merely an accusation. A defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
