Former Md. Guard Gets 30 Months In Inmate Beating

BALTIMORE (AP) -- A former Maryland correctional officer is starting a 2 1/2-year federal prison term for conspiring to severely beat an inmate who had punched a guard at the medium-security Roxbury Correctional Institution near Hagerstown.

U.S. District Judge James Bredar (breh-DAR') sentenced Tyson Hinckle on Monday in Baltimore.

Hinckle is the seventh former officer sentenced in a federal investigation stemming from the beating of inmate Kenneth Davis in 2008. Seven more await sentencing.
