A man who is being held in the Federal Correctional Institute in Beckley will now be spending more time behind bars.  Dave Manuel Berrios-Henandez, 24, was sentenced to serve 15 more years after he was found with a weapon.

Berrios-Hernandez pleaded guilty to the crime in November.  He admitted he had a handmade knife, also called a “shank,” on Sept. 5, 2017.  The shank was taken by staff at the prison after Berrios-Hernandez threw it down.

The case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Prisons.  Berrios-Hernandez was sentenced in front of Judge Irene Berger.
