(Stillwater, Okla.) — A 33-year-old prison inmate, who was 17 when he was accused of multiple counts of rape, kidnapping and armed robbery in Oklahoma County, was charged this week with severely beating a female guard at the Cimarron Correctional Facility in Cushing in January.
Willie Lonell Adams, who has been transferred from the Cushing private prison to the Oklahoma State Penitentiary in McAlester, could be given a life sentence if convicted of aggravated assault and battery on a corrections officer in Payne County after being convicted of a 15-count charge in Oklahoma County in 2003.
In his Payne County case, Adams has been accused of punching a female Cushing prison guard multiple times — causing multiple fractures of her nose, a laceration to the bridge of her nose, multiple contusions about her head and face and a brain concussion on Jan. 17.
At age 18, Adams was convicted and given concurrent sentences in a 2002 case in Oklahoma County of:
* three counts of first-degree rape for which he was given three 35-year prison terms;
* three counts of kidnapping for which he was given three 10-year prison terms;
* two counts of armed robbery for which he was given two 20-year prison terms;
* one count of attempted kidnapping for which he was given a five-year prison term;
* two counts of attempted armed robbery for which he was given two 10-year prison terms;
* two counts of assault while masked or disguised for which he was given two 10-year prison terms;
* one count of knowingly concealing stolen property for which he was given a five-year prison term.
* one count of unauthorized use of a vehicle for which he was given a two-year prison term.
