TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - A Honduran man has been sentenced to more than seven years in federal prison for assaulting a female corrections officer in Tucson in 2016.

Prosecutors say 43-year-old Wilmer Martin Flores was given an 87-month prison term.

A jury previously found Flores guilty of assault on a federal officer.

Prosecutors say Flores was charged with assaulting a U.S. Bureau of Prisons corrections officer in June 2016.

They say the woman suffered serious injuries.

At the time of the assault, Flores was serving a nearly 20-year sentence for sex trafficking and kidnapping.
