A prison inmate in Newtown has been charged for assaulting a correction officer. State police were called to Garner Correctional Institution last Thursday on a report of an assault.
23-year old Christopher Schuetz has been charged with three counts of 1st degree assault on a Department of Correction employee, which is a felony count. The high security prison inmate has also been charged with one count of disorderly conduct.
