Jailhouse assault earns inmate 14 more months

Posted: February 2, 2013 - 6:02pm  |  Updated: February 3, 2013 - 1:09am

An inmate at the Juneau jail was sentenced to additional time to serve for attacking another inmate.

Juneau Superior Court Judge Philip Pallenberg imposed 14 months for 20-year-old Devin L. Clements.

Prosecutors say Clements attacked a former confidential police informant while standing at the Lemon Creek Correctional Center lunch line in late July.

A grand jury indicted him on second-degree assault, a felony. He pleaded guilty to less serious felony charge and was sentenced Tuesday.

At the time of the assault, Clements was in custody in connection to a robbery and vehicle theft case.
