Beaumont prison fight results in additional sentence for federal inmate

A 28-year-old federal prison inmate has been sentenced for federal violations in the Eastern District of Texas, Acting U.S. Attorney Brit Featherston announced July 20.

Reginald Winfield Pablo pleaded guilty on Mar. 20 to possession of a prohibited object and was sentenced to 12 months and one day in federal prison by U.S. District Judge Ron Clark. This sentence will be served at the conclusion of the sentence Pablo is currently serving.

According to information presented in court, Pablo, an inmate at the Federal Correctional Complex in Beaumont, was observed fighting with another inmate on Sep. 22, 2016. After breaking up the fight, prison staff conducted a pat-down of the inmates and found two homemade weapons inside Pablo’s left pocket. The weapons had been constructed out of metal and sharpened to a point on one end.

The weapons measured approximately seven inches in length each. Such objects are prohibited in the Beaumont Federal Correctional Complex.

This case was investigated by the Bureau of Prisons and prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Randall L. Fluke.
