Inmate sentenced for attacking Kan. CO with shank
The inmate reportedly attacked the CO after the officer threatened to write him up for screaming at other inmates
TOPEKA, Kan. — An inmate at the Shawnee County Jail who attacked an officer will spend an additional 25 years in prison.
Twenty-seven-year-old Allen Thomas Schroeder Jr. was sentenced Wednesday for attempted second-degree murder for attacking corrections officer Lacy Noll with a shank in April 2017.
Noll suffered cuts and facial injuries.
The Topeka Capital-Journal reports at the time of the assault, Schroeder was awaiting sentencing in an unrelated attempted aggravated battery charge. He was sentenced to 16 months in that case, which Schroeder must serve before the 25-year term.
Noll testified earlier that Schroeder became upset because everyone in the module was on lockdown. She told him she was going to write him up for screaming at other inmates to file grievances and Schroeder attacked while she was on the phone.
