Former inmate at MCI gets three-day sentence



A former inmate at the Maryland Correctional Institution received a three-day sentence Tuesday for a knife attack on another prisoner last July.

Kenneth John Davis, 34, now housed at the Maryland House of Correction in Jessup, pleaded guilty in Washington County Circuit Court to carrying a concealed and deadly weapon, according to court records.

Assistant Washington County State's Attorney Susan Lochbaum told Judge Frederick Wright that the incident occurred July 27, 2000, in the yard at MCI.

The victim, James Wallace, told correctional officers he was working out in the yard that day when he felt something hit him in the right arm and the back, Lochbaum said.

Wallace turned and saw Davis with a knife in his hand, Lochbaum said. When Davis turned and ran, Wallace followed.

Wallace was treated at the prison hospital for his injuries.

In exchange for the guilty plea, charges of first- and second-degree assault were dropped.
