Inmate bites guard; gets 33 more months

March 28, 2017

An inmate at the Beaumont Federal Correction Complex will spend an additional 33 months in custody for biting a corrections officer in late December 2015 as the officer was transporting the inmate to the unit’s medical facility.

Montreal Delaney, 38, was scheduled for release on July 6, but will spend almost three years more in lockup for the current offense.

Delaney pleaded guilty on June 1, 2016. U.S. District Judge Ron Clark imposed the new sentence on Monday.

A corrections officer trying to restrain Delaney was bitten by the inmate, resulting in a wound for which the officer needed medical treatment.

The U.S. Attorney’s office did not specify Delaney’s original offense or length of sentence.
