 SCRANTON – The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced today that Wesley Mark Smith, age 53, an inmate at the United States Penitentiary – Allenwood, White Deer, Pennsylvania, was sentenced on November 20, 2020, to 120 months’ imprisonment by U.S. District Court Judge Matthew W. Brann, for a prison assault resulting in serious bodily injury.  

According to United States Attorney David J. Freed, Smith was convicted after a five-day trial in March 2020, for assaulting his cellmate by punching the victim about the face and head to the point of unconsciousness. After separating from the victim briefly at the direction of BOP staff, Smith reengaged by picking up a wheelchair located in the cell for the use of his cellmate and proceeding to bludgeon the face and chest of the prone and unconscious victim. The victim suffered severe injuries, including multiple facial fractures, intercranial subdural hemorrhage, brain herniation, complex nasal bone fractures, broken and missing teeth, and loss of a significant volume of blood.

The case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Bureau of Prisons.  Assistant U.S. Attorneys Todd K. Hinkley and George Rocktashel prosecuted the case.
