Four inmates who assaulted and severely injured a fellow prisoner at the Federal Correctional Complex in Lompoc in Nov. 2020 were sentenced to up to 41 months in federal prison, the FBI announced today.

The four suspects pleaded guilty to assaulting a fellow inmate who was incarcerated in their same unit. The suspects punched the victim in the head and he fell to the ground.

They continued to assault the victim as he lay on the ground, lying motionless on his back.

Following the assault, the victim spent three weeks in the hospital with multiple blunt-force injuries to his head, face, mouth, arms, legs, and torso, including a broken nose and multiple fractured teeth. The victim also suffered prolonged impairment of his mental faculties, required speech therapy and assistance to walk.
