A 44-year-old inmate at the Jerome Combs Detention Center in Kankakee now faces an attempted murder rap after the beating of a Correctional Officer. Michael Christmas is also facing an aggravated battery charge. Christmas allegedly attacked and beat the officer Monday. An investigation is underway to determine if proper procedures were followed. Other correctional officers were able to subdue Christmas, according to reports.
Christmas was jailed last month after an arrest by KAMEG for delivery of a controlled substance.
