Corrections officer from St. Johns hurt in assault at prison

A corrections officer from St. Johns is in stable condition at Sparrow Hospital after being attacked and seriously injured Wednesday night at a prison, officials said.

Three other corrections officers were treated for minor injuries after the incident, which happened at the Michigan Reformatory in Ionia, said Department of Corrections spokesman John Cordell.

Two prisoners were involved, Cordell said. They were returning to their housing unit, when - apparently without provocation - they assaulted one officer, Cordell said.   More...   PrisonerPal.com
