For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, Western District of New York

ROCHESTER, N.Y. -- U.S. Attorney Trini E. Ross announced today that Raymond Brock, 30, of Rochester, NY, who was convicted of assaulting a federal officer, was sentenced to serve 12 months in prison by U.S. Magistrate Judge Marian W. Payson.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Katelyn M. Hartford, who handled the case, stated that on May 2, 2022, Brock was taken into custody by members of the United States Marshals Service Task Force at his Forrester Street residence. After being taken into custody, Brock was uncooperative and refused to walk under his own power. A Task Force Officer tried speaking with Brock about the circumstances of the incident and arrest, during which he was physically resistant and said he was going to spit in the face of the officer. Brock did so, and his spit, which contained blood, struck the officer in the face and went into his mouth.

The sentencing is the result of an investigation by the United States Marshals Service Task Force, under the direction of Marshal Charles Salina.
