Bobby Cole was convicted in January of third-degree assault on an officer. The Lincoln Journal Star says Lancaster County District Judge Karen Flowers sentenced Cole on Tuesday to the maximum sentence for the crime.
Cole was serving a 14- to 21-year sentence for robbery and weapon charges in Douglas County and for assaulting an officer in Lancaster County when he charged with assaulting the caseworker at the prison in Lincoln.
Cole is now at the Tecumseh State Correctional Institute.
