Inmates Face Additional Charges After Beatings

Two Sutter County jail inmates are facing additional charges for allegedly beating and breaking bones of certain other inmates, according to the Appeal-Democrat. The assaulted men appear to have been targeted specifically because of the charges against them. Douglas Penner, who's accused of producing child pornography, had a broken nose and broken bones around his left eye. Michael Alexander, accused of murdering a 94-year-old woman, had a broken jaw. The men who allegedly attacked them, Juan Alvarez and Yowi Munoz, had been sentenced and were both awaiting transfer to state prison.
