Inmate who was beaten at Concord prison transferred to Mass.
“He was hit pretty hard in the face,” state Department of Corrections spokesman Jeffrey J. Lyons said of inmate Matthew J. York, who was found beaten Aug. 14 in the close custody unit at New Hampshire State Prison for Men in Concord.
“We are looking at all aspects of the assault to determine what may have caused it. We don’t want to specifically state that it may be related to a gang, but we will look at that among any other potential leads we may receive to determine what happened and to determine what, if any, arrests may be made,” Lyons said. No arrests have been made to date, he said.
York, formerly of Rochester, was convicted in Stafford County Superior Court in 2013 of felony theft, two counts each of burglary, felon in possession of a weapon and falsifying physical evidence.
Kelly York also told the Monitor that her husband’s injuries were so severe he had to have reconstructive surgery and spent nine days in a hospital before being moved to the prison’s medical unit. Lyons would not comment on this account.
Lyons said he could not specify the reasons for York’s transfer. But, he added, “one reason often considered is we have to ensure the safety of the inmate and ensure the safety of the institution.”
