Pollack prison stabbing nets 18 more years in prison

Posted: Updated:

ALEXANDRIA, La., (KNOE 8 News) - U.S. Attorney Stephanie A. Finley says that Isaac Hashi, 32, of San Diego, Calif., has been sentenced to 18 years in prison for stabbing a federal prison guard with a makeshift knife.

Hashi pleaded guilty on Nov. 16, 2012, to one count of assaulting a prison guard and possessing contraband, which was a four-inch makeshift plexiglass knife. Hashi stabbed the guard multiple times on Nov. 4, 2009 while incarcerated at the U.S. Penitentiary in Pollock. Hashi is serving a prison term at the Pollock Penitentiary for assault after throwing hot oil on a deportation official's face on Jan. 11, 2008, at the Columbia Care Center in South Carolina.

In addition to the 18-year sentence, he will be required to serve three years of supervised release, which he will serve after the 17-year sentence is completed for the earlier assault charge. 

Finley concluded. "We hope this sentence sends a strong message that assaulting a prison guard is a serious crime that has severe consequences."
