MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - A federal prisoner will spend nearly 23 years of additional time behind bars for attacking another inmate.

John David Pinke was convicted of attempted murder and conspiracy in August in federal court in Clarksburg. Prosecutors say Pinke and another prisoner, Edward C. Crow, beat a third prisoner at the federal prison at Hazelton in January 2013.

U.S. District Judge Irene M. Keeley on Tuesday sentenced Pinke to an additional 275 months in federal prison. The 36-year-old Pinke is now serving time at the Federal Correctional Institute at Gilmer in Glenville. Before Tuesday’s sentencing, Pinke’s release date was set for April 2034. That release date now extends to March 2057.

Crow is also scheduled to be sentenced Tuesday. A third prisoner was sentenced on related charges in July.
