DEER LODGE, Mont. (AP) — A man has been sentenced after pleading guilty to having a shank and jabbing it at two Montana State Prison corrections officers.

The Montana Standard reports 19-year-old Baby Devine Wilkins was sentenced Tuesday to 25 years in prison with 10 years deferred.

Wilkins last week changed his plea from not guilty to guilty of possession of a deadly weapon by a prisoner and two counts of assault on a peace officer or judicial officer.

Wilkins was a prisoner last spring in the Montana State Prison serving time for crimes he committed in 2016, including robberies in Missoula and Idaho, and an assault on a Missoula County detention officer.

The new charges against him stemmed from an incident in May 2018.
