According to the FBI, James was the only defendant to use a weapon and admitted to repeatedly striking the victim with a combination lock attached to a belt-like strap.
The attack hospitalized the inmate for three weeks with multiple blunt-force injuries to his head, face, mouth, arms, legs, and torso, including a broken nose and multiple fractured teeth, according to the FBI.
The FBI said that the victim also suffered prolonged impairment of his mental faculties, required speech therapy after discharge, and required assistance to walk.
In addition to their sentences, United States District Judge Virginia A. Phillips ordered the defendants jointly and severally liable to pay $75,917.65 in restitution, according to the FBI.
The FBI said that all the defendants’ sentences were ordered to run consecutively with their respective undischarged terms of incarceration.
