MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - An Eastern Regional Jail inmate was found guilty of three charges Thursday stemming from a disturbance at the jail three years ago in which three correctional officers were injured, officials said.
A Berkeley County Circuit Court jury found Robert Eugene Carter of Martinsburg guilty of two counts of malicious assault on a correctional officer and battery of a correctional officer, said Berkeley County Prosecuting Attorney Pamela Games-Neely.
Carter, who will be sentenced Sept. 19, faces between seven and 30 years in jail on the convictions, Games-Neely said.
Carter was an inmate at the regional jail on Aug. 28, 1994, when three correctional officers became involved in a fight with inmates inside the lockup.
