Charges Upped Against Inmate In Prison Attack

An Anderson inmate has been sentenced to 35 additional years behind bars for an attack that seriously injured a prison counselor. A jury convicted 30-year-old Josiah Boyd in August of attempted murder in the June 2016 attack on Jerry Hooley at the Pendleton Correctional Facility. A Madison County judge sentenced Boyd on Wednesday after the victim’s wife, Janine Hooley, testified that her husband hasn’t been the same since the attack left him hospitalized.
