Folsom inmate sentenced for assault on fellow prisoner

Published: Tuesday, Nov. 19, 2013 - 4:36 pm

An inmate California State Prison, Sacramento in Folsom has been sentenced to an additional 23 years to life behind bars for assaulting a fellow prisoner.

A Sacramento County jury in August convicted Mario Aguillon, 26, of assaulting an inmate with a deadly weapon and possession of a sharp instrument. On Friday, Aguillon’s motion for a new trial was denied.

Sacramento Superior Court Judge Steve White ordered the 23-years-to-life sentence to run consecutively to a 25-years-to life sentence Aguillon is already serving.

On Oct. 26, 2012, Aguillon attacked a fellow inmate, stabbing him 16 times with a weapon made out of a 6-inch piece of metal sharpened to a point, according to a Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office news release. The victim was treated at a hospital and released from medical care the following day.

Aguillon was previously convicted of committing first-degree murder when he was 14 years old, authorities said. He will not be eligible for release on parole until 2060.
