WAYNE COUNTY, Ind. - A Richmond, Ind., man has been convicted of battery by bodily waste.
Wayne County prosecutors said while incarcerated, Maurice Mitchell became upset when officers removed a packet of Kool-Aid from his cell.
The video evidence showed Mitchell in his cell holding a cup, while using a mattress as a shield.
After officers entered the cell, Mitchell threw urine and feces at the officers.
He is already serving a 50-year prison sentence for robbery. Records show he's housed at the Indiana Department of Corrections Reception and Diagnostic Center in Plainfield.
Mitchell is set to be sentenced at 11 a.m. Sept. 23 in Wayne Circuit Court.
