A 37-year-old Scottsbluff man has been sentenced to three years in prison for assaulting a fellow inmate at the Scotts Bluff County Detention Center.

Albert Cornelius was sentenced by District Judge Leo Dobrovolny on Monday morning following his conviction of Assault by a Confined Person, a Class 3A Felony.

Court documents say in November Cornelius was serving a 30 day jail sentence on a conviction of Criminal Mischief. Ten days in to his sentence he punched an inmate six times, causing the victim to lose his front tooth and suffer a bloody lip.

The three year prison sentence was the maximum allowed under Nebraska state law.
