ORLANDO—Chief U.S. District Judge Anne C. Conway today sentenced Scott Michael Patrick (48, Portland, Oregon) to eight years and four months in federal prison for assault resulting in serious bodily injury. He was found guilty by a federal jury on June 12, 2013. Patrick will begin serving the sentence upon completion of his current federal sentence, which was imposed following a federal conviction for bank robbery. Patrick has been held in isolation due to his violent past and association with a violent white supremacist prison group.

According to court documents, Patrick, who was an inmate at the Coleman Correctional Complex, carried out a plan to viciously attack the victim. On February 3, 2007, Patrick went to the victim’s assigned unit where he began shadow boxing and stretching inside another inmate’s cell before attacking the victim. After the victim walked past the cell, Patrick and another inmate began brutally beating the victim. A third inmate joined in the fight and stabbed the victim six times while Patrick continued to strike the victim until he collapsed to the floor, smacking his head against a metal kick plate. Patrick is a member of the Aryan Resistance Movement, a violent white supremacist prison gang.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. It was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorneys Vincent A. Citro and James D. Mandolfo.
