Attack on guard draws three-year sentence

CROSSVILLE — A man being held on a rape charge in 2011 who reportedly attacked a Cumberland County correction officer pleaded guilty to the felony assault and received a three-year prison sentence.

Steven Lee Sneed, 28, entered the plea before Judge Leon Burns last month and is being given credit for time served between Sept. 22, 2011 and May 18 of this year.
