Rusk Prison Inmate Sentenced In Attack

An East Texas prison inmate who attacked a prison guard three years ago, was sentenced to 40 more years in jail for it. 29-year-old Darrell Horton is already an inmate in the Bradshaw State Jail in Rusk County. In March of 2002, investigators say Horton attacked prison guard Don Gertz.

The attack caused Gertz to go blind in his right eye. Horton was convicted of second degree felony assault of a public servant. He is already serving a sentence on drug charges.
