Patricia Brown, 22, serving 30 years for murder, pleaded guilty in Federal Court Tuesday to assault by hitting a fellow inmate with a white athletic sock holding two padlocks.
According to court documents and statements made in court, on May 4, 2012, Brown assaulted another Danbury FCI inmate. The victim suffered a laceration close to her right ear and required three stitches to close the wound, and also suffered from headaches.
Brown is scheduled to be sentenced by United States District Judge Robert N. Chatigny on April 4, at which time Brown faces a maximum term of imprisonment of 10 years and a fine of up to $250,000.
Brown is currently serving a 30-year sentence after having been convicted of murder in 2009 in the District of Minnesota.
