A suspected white supremacist already serving a 20-year federal prison term will have his sentenced extended for attacking a black inmate.
He is Steven Loren Scott, 51, sentenced this week in Springfield to ten and a half years for an October 2000 stabbing. It happened at the U-S Medical Center for Federal Prisoners in Springfield.
A federal jury found Scott guilty last September of using a six-inch sharpened metal spike, or shank, to stab fellow inmate Erving Bond Junior in the chest. Bond was not seriously wounded. Prosecutors said guards later found a second shank hidden in Scott’s underwear.
Scott also faces charges from a federal indictment in Los Angeles that he and 39 others were members of the white supremacist prison gang, the Aryan Brotherhood.
