David B. Fein, United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, announced that Patricia A. Brown, 22, a prisoner at the Federal Correctional Institution (FCI) in Danbury, was sentenced today by United States District Judge Robert N. Chatigny in Hartford to a consecutive 21-month term of imprisonment for assaulting another inmate.

According to court documents and statements made in court, on May 4, 2012, Brown assaulted another Danbury FCI inmate with two padlocks placed in a white athletic sock. The victim suffered a laceration close to her right ear and required three stitches to close the wound and also suffered from headaches.

On January 8, 2013, Brown pleaded guilty to one count of assault with a dangerous weapon.

Brown is currently serving a 30-year sentence after having been convicted of murder in 2009 in the District of Minnesota.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Neeraj N. Patel and Special Assistant United States Attorney Anjna R. Kapoor.
