The Alamogordo Daily News reports that 32-year-old Michael T. Cox Jr.'s sentence will run consecutively to his 18-year sentence for conviction of inappropriately touching a 5-year-old girl. He was sentenced on the courtroom on Sept. 26.

The courtroom attack occurred after Cox was convicted of sexual contact with a minor.

Cox pleaded no contest contact to charges of felony battery on a peace officer and misdemeanor aggravated battery. At sentencing, Cox apologized to the court, prosecutor and Otero County Sheriff's deputy for the attack.
