NEW BOSTON, Texas–An inmate at the Barry Telford Unit was found guilty by a Bowie County jury Wednesday of throwing feces on a correctional officer last year.
It took fewer than 10 minutes for the jury to return the guilty verdict for Alonzo Gilbert Guerrero Jr., 25, after hearing several hours of testimony Wednesday afternoon. Correctional Officer Rebecca Smith testified that the assault nearly led her to quit her job.
“It soaked me almost from head to toe. It was like he had been saving the stuff for days,” Smith testified under questioning from Assistant District Attorney Kelley Crisp. “I really don’t know how to describe it to you. It kind of took away my dignity.”
