Restitution Hearing Set in AL Prisoner Death Case

By  | 

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) -- A federal judge has set a hearing Dec. 6 on restitution payments by three former state corrections employees who've been sentenced to prison in connection with the beating death of an inmate.

U.S. District Judge Myron Thompson set the hearing for Michael Smith, Matthew Davidson and Scottie Glenn.

The restitution hearing is a follow-up to the defendants' sentencing on Monday. Smith got 30 years in prison, Davidson seven years and Glenn five years for charges stemming from the beating death of inmate Rocrast Mack in August 2010 at a state prison in Clayton.

Smith was convicted of violating Mack's constitutional rights, conspiracy and obstruction of justice. Davidson pleaded guilty to violating Mack's rights and conspiring with others to obstruct justice. Glenn pleaded guilty to violating Mack's rights and conspiracy.
