It’s not clear when they will be sentenced.
“Instead of using his time in prison to rehabilitate, Prater chose to continue similar criminal acts that led to his incarceration,” said Chris Hacker, a special agent with the FBI’s Atlanta office. “His bold defiance of the law put prisoners and prison staff in danger and he will now be held accountable for his actions.”
