Officer Charged With Helping Inmates Attack Another Inmate

Baltimore (AP) - State officials say a 21-year-old state correctional officer has been charged with conspiracy to commit first-degree attempted murder in the stabbing of an inmate at the Baltimore City Detention Center.

According to the Baltimore Sun, correctional officer Sherman Lawrence is accused of helping two inmates stab a third inmate, 26-year-old Ronald Scott.

Lawrence is accused of ordering Scott into a recreation area with other inmates and then ordered everyone out of the room, except for Scott and three others.

Authorities say 24-year-old inmate Donte Smith and another man threw a sheet over Scott's head, and someone stabbed him in the head and body.

The bleeding inmate was ordered back into his cell, where he was found during a security check.

Officials say Smith has been charged with attempted murder and Sherman was fired.


  • This kind of action by an officer of the law has to STOP! Cnadaian cops are no better!
