An inmate at a Fairfield County prison admitted to possessing weapons while in custody.
Julian De Jesus Castillo, 35, pleaded guilty on Wednesday, Sept. 25 in Hartford federal court to possession of contraband in a federal prison after he was busted with weapons in February last year.
On Feb. 8 last year, Castillo, who is an inmate at the Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury, was caught with a razor blade and a 7.5-inch piece of flat metal that had sharpened edges and a point on one end.
U.S. Attorney John Durham said that the razor blade was found taped to the underside of Castillo’s bunk in the prison and the metal blade was at the base of a pillar next to his bunk.
Durham said the objects were designed or intended to be used as weapons.
Castillo will face a maximum term of five years in prison when he is sentenced on Thursday, Dec. 19.
