Police: Vt. inmate attacked corrections officer

Herbert Fagans

SPRINGFIELD, Vt. (WCAX) An inmate convicted of injuring a corrections officer is being accused of the same thing months later.

Vermont State Police say Herbert Fagans, 31, of Brattleboro, attacked another inmate at the Southern State Correctional Facility in Springfield earlier this month. Police say when a corrections officer tried to intervene, Fagans assaulted him, too.

Fagans was convicted of assaulting a separate corrections officer back in August. He's due in court in January.
