CHIPPEWA FALLS, Wis. (AP) -- An inmate convicted of attacking two corrections officers as they searched his cell has been sentenced to an additional six years in prison.
A Chippewa Herald report says 56-year-old Paul Nmi Golden was convicted and sentenced Tuesday.
Golden has 13 convictions, including one for sexual assault from 2006. He's being held at the Stanley Correctional Institution.
Officers Carrie Seichter and Tom Cicha were searching his cell in April 2012 after Golden was accused of stealing items from the kitchen. Prosecutors say Golden lashed out, giving Cicha a concussion and breaking Seichter's nose.
The victims both asked for the maximum six-year penalty.
Golden had fired several attorneys appointed to defend him. He tried to mount a self-defense but later decided to let the trial proceed in his absence.
