Correctional officer at Stiles unit attacked


A pregnant correctional officer at the Mark W. Stiles unit in Beaumont is recovering after being beaten by an inmate.

The Texas Department of Criminal Justice says the officer was punched several times after instructing a prisoner to move out of a doorway Sunday night. She pepper sprayed the inmate until additional staff could respond.

The officer was treated at the hospital and released.

This is the second attack on a stiles correctional officer in less than seven months.
