U.S. Penitentiary Inmate Convicted of Voluntary Manslaughter of Another Inmate
Crime BlotterAugust 23, 2009POLLOCK, LA—SHAUN WAYNE WILLIAMS, age 37, an inmate at U.S. Penitentiary in Pollock, Louisiana, was convicted by a federal jury today of voluntary manslaughter for killing another inmate, United States Attorney Donald W. Washington announced.

WILLIAMS was charged by a federal grand jury on September 24, 2008, in a one-count indictment charging him with the Second Degree Murder of William Anthony Bullock at the United States Penitentiary in Pollock, Louisiana. The November 2007 attack was recorded on the prison´s video camera system. WILLIAMS used a flat metal shank that he made himself from a part removed from a locker located in another cell.

WILLIAMS is currently confined at USP Pollock where he is serving a 98-month sentence for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. WILLIAMS faces a statutory maximum of an additional 15 years in prison when he is sentenced on December 1, 2009.

U.S. Attorney Donald Washington stated: "The aggressive position of our office on prosecuting assaults committed by inmates underscores the severity of violent prisoner behavior. The message to federal prison inmates is clear. This office has a zero tolerance standard for violence committed by prison inmates. When such violence occurs, this office will seek the maximum prison term allowed under the law."

Sentencing in federal court is determined by the discretion of federal judges and the governing statute. Parole has been abolished in the federal system.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Robert W. Gillespie.

(While i appreicate the bureaus stance on this and other crimes like it. i have to once again make the point that, If this facility was fully staffed things of this nature could be better avoided.)

Pollock prisoner pleads guilty to escape

A man who walked away from Pollock’s U.S. Penitentiary earlier this year pleaded guilty to escape today, Nov. 5, in Alexandria’s federal court.

Manuel Hernandez Navarrette was captured soon after he walked away from the penitentiary’s minimum-security camp April 25.

He was found nearby walking away east on Airbase Road, FBI Agent Jeff Goins testified. He said Navarrette told him he was leaving the camp to get female companionship.

Navarrette will be sentenced on the escape charge Feb. 19, 2010. He pleaded before U.S. District Judge Dee Drell.

I have a friend in that crazy place and I worry about him everyday. He is in the USP. I served 12 years my-self and I thank God that I never ended up there. The BOP is run by a bunch of clowns and idiots.
