[May 04, 2017]  On April 25, 2017, Associate Judge William Workman accepted a fully negotiated plea agreement which sentence Sheila Rice to 12 years in prison for the offense of Aggravated Battery, a class 2 felony.

The conviction and sentence stem from a June 30, 2016 incident at Logan Correctional Center. Sheila Rice, an inmate at Logan Correctional Center, was involved in a verbal altercation with another inmate.

Correctional Officer Allison Kenney responded to the scene. Correctional Officer Kennedy gave commands for inmate Rice to go back to her room – which were ignored. Correctional Officer Kennedy stepped in front of inmate Rice to prevent a physical altercation when inmate Rice punched and kicked Correctional Officer Kennedy.
