Inmate gets 6-9 Additional Years for Assaults During A Prison Uprising

A man imprisoned for a 2016 Lincoln slaying has been given six to nine more years behind bars. Lancaster County District Court records indicate Matthew Pavey has been sentenced for his role in an April 2017 fire and disturbance at the Nebraska prisons’ Diagnostic and Evaluation Center in Lincoln. Pavey pleaded no contest to three counts of assault.

Pavey has been serving 75 years to life for the shooting death of James Carr. Three other inmates charged in the disturbance also have been sentenced.
