WORCESTER - A Superior Court judge in Worcester sentenced an inmate at Worcester House of Correction to an additional five to seven-and-a-half-years in state prison on Friday, October 1.
Marcus Stewart, 27, of Worcester, received a sentence for five counts of assault and battery on a corrections officer. The charges were from separate incidents at Worcester House of Correction in 2017 and 2018. The jury also found Stewart guilty of vandalism and disturbing a correctional institution for incidents in 2018 and another vandalism charge for an incident in 2017.
The judge imposed one year to one-and-a-half-years for each of the five convictions for assault and battery on a corrections officer. Each of those sentences run consecutively, adding up to five to seven-and-a-half-years.
The judge sentenced Stewart to one to one-and-a-half years for vandalism and a 30-day sentence for disturbing a correctional institution. The judge ordered those sentences to run concurrent with the last sentence for assault.
Stewart’s new prison term does not begin until December 2022, when the current term being served concludes.
