Former FBI agent gets 30-month sentence for assaulting marshal

BRIDGEPORT, Conn. -- A former FBI agent was sentenced to 30 months in prison Thursday for assaulting a federal marshal, authorities said.

Gary L. John, 58, of Westerly, R.I., was sentenced in federal court in Bridgeport and ordered to pay a $4,000 fine. On Jan. 18, a jury found John guilty of assaulting a federal officer.

On Dec. 8, 2005, deputy U.S. marshals were attempting to locate John, who was a fugitive wanted in Rhode Island for violation of protective and no contact orders, and for failure to appear.

When a deputy marshal attempted to arrest John in Stratford, he hit the deputy marshal with his fist, authorities said. After a struggle, the law enforcement officers were able to arrest him.

He has remained in custody since his arrest.

"This sentence should send an appropriate message that assaults on federal law enforcement officers will not be tolerated," said U.S. Attorney Kevin O'Connor.
