Jury convicts Benner state prison inmate of assault

A man was found guilty by a jury on Wednesday of two counts of third-degree felony aggravated harassment by a prisoner.

Quintez Talley, 29, was charged twice in June for propelling urine on Benner state prison corrections officers.

A report from the Centre County District Attorney’s Office said that on June 5, Talley threw a carton of milk filled with urine at a corrections officer. The second incident happened June 18 when he threw urine out of the bottom of the door of the restrictive housing unit he was staying, and onto a corrections officer.

While throwing the urine during the second incident, Talley also made derogatory statements to the corrections officer, the report said.

Talley is scheduled for sentencing June 18 by Judge Pamela A. Ruest.
