Deirdre M. Daly, Acting United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, announced that Yvonne Davis, 62, a prisoner at the Federal Correctional Institution (FCI) in Danbury, pleaded guilty today before Senior United States District Judge Warren W. Eginton in Bridgeport to one count of assault with a dangerous weapon.

According to court documents and statements made in court, on November 25, 2012, Davis assaulted another FCI Danbury inmate with a ballpoint pen that had been broken so as to have a sharp edge on it. The victim suffered a laceration to the back of her arm that was five to six inches long and one-half inch deep. The wound required 24 stitches to close.

Judge Eginton has scheduled sentencing for November 6, 2013, at which time Davis faces a maximum term of imprisonment of 10 years and a fine of up to $250,000.

Davis is currently serving a 37-month sentence after having been convicted in the Northern District of Texas of being a felon in possession of a firearm.

This case is being investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Neeraj N. Patel.
