March 28, 2007|by ERIN JULIUS

A Washington County District Court judge found probable cause March 22 that Dionne Jackson, an inmate at Maryland Correctional Training Center, assaulted another inmate, according to court documents.

Jackson's preliminary hearing dealt with charges of attempted second-degree murder, first-degree assault, second-degree assault and reckless endangerment. Court documents show that Judge Mark D. Thomas found probable cause on all counts.

On Feb. 5, 2007, Jackson, 26, was attacked by another inmate, John Jackson, court documents allege. The inmates fought as correctional officers tried to break up the fight. Both inmates were sprayed with pepper spray to stop the fight.

John Jackson's chest was bleeding and he was taken to Washington County Hospital, then flown to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore, where he underwent surgery, charging documents state.
