An inmate who admitted stabbing his cellmate with a pen at the Washington County Detention Center last February has been sentenced to one year in jail.
Michael D. Pinkney, 23, pleaded guilty in Washington County Circuit Court to second-degree assault. Additional charges of first-degree assault and reckless endangerment were dropped in exchange for the plea.
The guilty plea was entered May 29 at a hearing that had been scheduled as a suppression hearing on the evidence.
