A Southern Ohio Correctional Facility inmate was sentenced to eight more years in prison after he was found guilty of trying to intimidate prison employees.
On Tuesday, 30-year-old Dennis P. Tuck was convicted by a Scioto County petit jury on two counts of felony intimidation and was sentenced by Judge Howard H. Harcha III.
According to Scioto County Prosecutor Mark Kuhn, Tuck was indicted because of threatening letters he sent in 2004. The letters contained graphic descriptions of how Tuck would kill and mutilate SOCF employees after he was released from prison.
Before his new sentence, Tuck was eligible for parole in May.
Tuck was sent to prison for two 1995 assault convictions. He also had a prior conviction for trying to stab two Greene County jailers with a homemade knife, or shank.
