Inmates get more time in weapons case
Two inmates at the Maryland Correctional Training Center were given extra prison time Tuesday in Washington County Circuit Court, both for having homemade weapons.
Janero Patrick Burrell, 23, had three months tacked on to a four-year sentence he is serving for burglary.
Burrell admitted carrying a concealed weapon in connection with a July 1997 incident in which the cell he shared with another inmate was searched.
The cellmate was accused of theft and witnesses told police that the cellmate asked Burrell to hold the homemade knife for him.
