MARION, Ill. - An inmate at the United States Penitentiary at Marion, Illinois, was sentenced today in United States District Court in Benton to a term of imprisonment of 27 months for possessing a homemade knife within that facility, announced Donald S. Boyce, United States Attorney for the Southern District of Illinois.

Christopher Leon Hainta, 45, had previously pled guilty to an indictment charging him with that offense, which occurred on July 22, 2016.

At the time he possessed the weapon, Hainta was serving a 46 month sentence, imposed in the Western District of Oklahoma, for being a felon in possession of a firearm. The 27-month sentence was imposed consecutively to that sentence.

In addition to the term of imprisonment, Hainta was ordered to pay the United States fines and special assessments totaling $400 and was placed on a two year term of supervised release to follow his incarceration.

Hainta was immediately returned to the custody of the Federal Bureau of Prisons to resume serving his sentences.

The case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation with the assistance of the Federal Bureau of Prisons and was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney James M. Cutchin.
