|Rowdy inmate attacks officers, assaults lawyer, tackles bailiffs in courtroom|
YAKIMA, Wash. - A man sentenced to prison in April for a stabbing at a laundromat is in even deeper trouble now after assaulting two corrections officers, attacking his own attorney and then fighting with four court bailiffs at a rowdy hearing this week that was captured on video, police say.
The video, shot by KIMA-TV News, shows the man struggling with the bailiffs in the courtroom after he was bound and gagged. Now the man's attorney no longer wants to represent him as he awaits further sentencing for the assault on corrections officers.
The man, Jose P. Linares, 27, originally was tried and convicted in April for stabbing another man at a Sunnyside laundromat in 2016 after asking the victim what gang he was with. The trial was delayed repeatedly because Linares has a twin brother, and prosecutors needed to be certain they had charged the right twin.
