St. Lawrence County inmate charged in jail scuffle that injured officer


CANTON — A two-time felon was in court for the second time this week after being arrested Wednesday following an investigation into an alleged altercation with corrections officers last month at St. Lawrence County jail.

Nathan G. Corbine, 23, an inmate, was charged with second-degree assault, a class D felony, over the Nov. 21 incident in which an officer was injured during a scuffle.

Sheriff Kevin M. Wells said the officer’s injuries were not serious, but the severity of the charge is required under law because the case involved harm to a law enforcement officer. The corrections officer’s name was not released.

On Monday, St. Lawrence County Judge Jerome J. Richards sentenced Mr. Corbine to two to four years in prison on a third-degree burglary charge to which Mr. Corbine pleaded guilty in October. He also was ordered to make restitution of $120 and pay $375 in fines and fees.

In August 2010, Mr. Corbine, then of Morristown, was sentenced by Judge Richards to one to three years in prison on a third-degree burglary conviction for a 2009 convenience store break-in.

Mr. Corbine was arraigned Wednesday in Canton Town Court on the assault charge and returned to custody in lieu of $5,000 bail or $10,000 bond.
