Mixed verdict against U.P. prison inmates
(2008-05-07)
(wgvu) - IRONWOOD, Mich. (AP) - Two inmates have been acquitted of the
most serious charges against them after a disturbance at an Upper
Peninsula prison camp two years ago.
Jerry Johnson and James Woods were found not guilty Tuesday of
assault with intent to murder a corrections officer and assault
with a dangerous weapon.
But they were convicted of assaulting corrections officer Albert
Basso, who was stabbed, and assisting a riot at Camp Ojibway in
Marenisco.
Johnson also was found guilty of assaulting prison employee
Roberta Hemming.
No sentencing date has been set.
