Man sentenced for assaulting woman at federal courthouse

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Court documents say an Arizona man has been sentenced to eight months in federal prison for assaulting another inmate by touching the woman’s inner thigh and buttocks. The U.S Attorney’s Office in Oregon said Kelvin McDuffie of Supai, Arizona, was also sentenced to one year of supervised release for the incident inside a prisoner elevator at the Hatfield Federal Courthouse in Portland, Oregon. KPTV reports the assault happened July 26 last year as McDuffie was being escorted by law enforcement with the victim and other inmates. He was charged in November 2019 with assault and abusive sexual contact and pleaded guilty to charges earlier this year.
