Charles Bronson sentenced to further two years in jail for attacking a prison governor
Bronson, now known as Salvador, was apparently angered after learning that prison staff had withheld "enormous amounts" of mail from him
Charles Bronson, one of the most violent inmates in Britain, has been sentenced to two years for attacking a prison officer.
Sitting dressed in his trademark dark glasses and handlebar moustache, in a secure dock flanked by six prison guards and with scores of police dressed in riot gear stationed outside Amersham Crown Court, the 61-year-old now known as Charles Salvador was found guilty of actual bodily harm.
Asked how he would plead, he told the court: "I plead guilty, but I don't want to."
The attack occurred in a TV room in Woodhill Prison, Milton Keynes, on 28 April.
The governor sustained bruising to his torso, arms and legs from the outburst.
He is believed to have been angered after he had learned that prison staff had withheld "enormous amounts" of mail from him.
His reaction was taken into account as mitigating circumstances, and the judge called for the jail to launch an investigation into the incident.
Although his injuries were not severe, the judge said that Bronson’s history made the crime all the more terrifying.
He is currently serving a life sentence for holding a prison art teacher hostage in 1999.
