WORTHINGTON — A Pipestone man serving time at the Nobles County Jail is facing new charges after allegedly assaulting a corrections worker.

Jermain Edwards Schroeder, 39, is now charged in Nobles County Fifth District Court with felony-level fourth degree assault of a correctional employee — charges that carry a maximum sentence of two years imprisonment and/or a $4,000 fine.

According to the police report, Schroeder head-butted the corrections worker in the face in a March 4 incident during which he was being transferred to isolation. The head-butt caused a cut inside the victim’s top lip and a swollen lip. Three other correctional officers who were present at the time of the assault were interviewed. Their statements were reportedly consistent with that of the victim.
