FCI Berlin Inmate Pleads Guilty to Federal Weapon Possession Charge
CONCORD, NH (Oct. 12, 2014) —Myron Armstrong, 38, an inmate at the Federal Correctional Institution in Berlin, New Hampshire, has entered a guilty plea in the United States District Court for the District of New Hampshire to one count of possessing a weapon in a federal correctional facility, announced United States Attorney John P. Kacavas.
In January 2014, Armstrong fashioned a makeshift weapon out of a combination lock and a sock, which he subsequently used to assault another inmate. Armstrong—who faces a maximum sentence of five additional years in prison and criminal fines of up to $250,000—will be sentenced in January of 2015.
This prosecution arose from an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, in collaboration with the Federal Correctional Institution in Berlin, New Hampshire. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Nick Abramson.
