Inmate attacked sex offender, gets year
An inmate who assaulted a child sex offender in the Frederick County Adult Detention Center has been sentenced to a year in jail.
Twenty-year-old Denver J. Owens was sentenced on Tuesday. He pleaded guilty to second-degree assault in the June attack on 19-year-old Jonathan M. Bonita.
Owens punched Bonita in the head twice shortly after arriving at the jail.
Bonita had pleaded guilty in June to second-degree sex offense for having a 4-year-old girl perform a sex act about two years ago. He is serving an 18-month sentence.
Bonita spoke at Owens' sentencing, and said he was tried of being harassed by other inmates. He is in protective custody.
