FCI Berlin Inmate Sentenced On Federal Weapon Possession Charge

          CONCORD, N.H. – Randy Bragg, 45, an inmate at the Federal Correctional Institution in Berlin, New Hampshire, was sentenced in United States District Court for the District of New Hampshire on federal weapon possession charges, announced Acting United States Attorney Donald Feith.  The Court imposed a term of nine months’ imprisonment, to be served consecutive to Bragg’s current prison sentence.

          During a routine search in October 2014, correctional officers discovered on Bragg’s person a tooth-brush sharpened into a stabbing weapon.  Acting United States Attorney Donald Feith stated, “We will continue to work with the Bureau of Prisons and the FBI to ensure the safety of BOP staff and the safety of inmates who we have been entrusted to its custody.  Prosecutions such as this one should send a clear message that inmates found in possession of weapons can expect to be prosecuted and to serve additional time in prison.”

          This prosecution arose from an investigation by the Federal Correctional Institution in Berlin, New Hampshire, in collaboration with the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
