Twenty-year-old Mitchell David Bradford appeared before Hinds County Circuit Court Judge William Gowan Monday and pleaded guilty to aggravated assault for stabbing another inmate. Judge Gowan sentenced Bradford to 20 years in the custody of the Mississippi Department of Corrections, 20 to serve, with five years to serve post release supervision.

Bradford is currently serving a 20 year sentence for armed robbery and sexual battery.  The first 15 years of the new sentence will run concurrent to his original sentence.  The defendant will then have an additional five years to serve consecutive to the prior sentence which will total 25 years in custody with five years of post release supervision.

The assault took place at the Raymond Detention Center June 20, 2013. Bradford and one other detainee participated in the stabbing of another inmate with shanks made from pieces of metal found at the jail.  The victim was stabbed several times in the head face and torso.
