Lawmaker backs Pitchess lease

SACRAMENTO - A key state lawmaker has signed off on a deal calling for the state to lease parts of a jail in Los Angeles County.

In a letter to state finance officials, state Sen. Mike Thompson, D-Santa Rosa, said he was withdrawing objections he had made earlier to a plan for the state to lease space in the Peter J. Pitchess Detention Center near Castaic.

Thompson, who oversees midyear budget requests for the Legislature, said he was satisfied by changes made in the proposed contract. The state will pay the county $1.2 million for the jail space through the rest of the fiscal year, which ends in June.

FBI probes guard's slaying at prison

LOMPOC - The FBI on Friday investigated the stabbing death of a prison guard and the wounding of four others by an inmate at a federal maximum-security prison, the warden said.

Scott Williams, 29, a correctional officer at the U.S. Penitentiary, was pronounced dead at 6:55 p.m. Thursday at Lompoc Valley Community Hospital, said Warden David Rardin.

The identity of the inmate was not released.

A statement from the prison said ``one inmate believed to have been involved in the assault has been transported to another federal facility.''

Williams had been a guard at the penitentiary since March 1993.

Four other guards who came to Williams' assistance were injured by the same inmate, Rardin said. One of them remained hospitalized Friday.
