California Correctional Officer Taken to Outside Hospital Following Inmate Attack

Folsom, CA...A correctional officer is being treated for injuries he suffered from an attack by a California State Prison-Sacramento, inmate Friday afternoon. At 3:20 p.m. May 9, an officer was on duty when inmate Sidney Petillo, 39, began swinging his arms and striking the officer in his face and another officer in the chest....

About 45 minutes after the incident, the officer complained of being light-headed and almost fell to the ground. He was transported to an area hospital, where he was diagnosed with a concussion.

Inmate Petillo was subdued and will be placed in the Administrative Segregation Unit.

Inmate Petillo was committed to the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation on Aug. 29, 1994, from Los Angeles County to serve a sentence of life with the possibility of parole for second-degree murder. He received a consecutive two-year sentence in July 1995 for battery on a peace officer while in prison.

The matter will be referred to the Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office for prosecution.

California State Prison-Sacramento is a multi-mission institution that houses more than 2,200 inmates and employs more than 1,700 people. Opened in 1986, the institution houses maximum-security inmates serving long sentences or those who have proved to be management problems at other institutions. CSP-SAC also houses inmates requiring specialized mental health programming and inmates with high-risk medical concerns. CSP-SAC promotes rehabilitative opportunities through work assignments, vocational training, self-help programs and educational opportunities.

Hate to hear that news but most in the know, know corectional officers are some of the biggest pancies in law enforement. They'll often brag about how manyfights they've been in, when in reality they've never done sh*t. Sad,

    Fistfights? That's nothing! They try to avoid fistfights. It takes a lot more courage to go behind those walls than you can imagine sitting at your keyboard. Every day they go to work knowing if there is a riot they probably will be locked in with the inmates, and they know if taken hostage there will be no hostage trades.

    I know dozens correctional officers all over the state. Have known them for decades, I am one of those people "in the know", and I know you don't represent the facts. They are not "pansies" as you claim. All of them I know are people who will stand their ground and will respond to emergencies including real serious violence.

      Mr. "in the know" can't even spell "correctional" or "pansies".... he's not "in the know" about much.
