PERU, Ind. (AP) — An inmate at a northern Indiana prison convicted of slashing a correctional officer’s face with a razor blade has received a 38-year sentence for the attack.
The Kokomo Tribune reports that a Miami County judge sentenced Raul Sotelo on Wednesday in the attack at the Miami Correctional Facility.
Sotelo was already serving a life sentence for the 1973 murder of a 12-year-old Lake County girl.
A jury convicted Sotelo last month of attempted murder and other charges in the July 2020 prison attack with a homemade weapon that left Officer Mackenzie Malott with a deep, permanent 5-inch-long facial scar.
