Suttle allegedly expressed himself on an officer’s shoes while in a holding cell. The charge is what I found interesting: aggravated harassment by a prisoner. This is a felony in the state.
Here is what appears to be a definition of the crime:
A person who is confined in or committed to any local or county detention facility, jail or prison or any State penal or correctional institution or other State penal or correctional facility located in this Commonwealth commits a felony of the third degree if he, while so confined or committed or while undergoing transportation to or from such an institution or facility in or to which he was confined or committed, intentionally or knowingly causes or attempts to cause another to come into contact with blood, seminal fluid, saliva, urine or feces by throwing, tossing, spitting or expelling such fluid or material.
Court have limited the crime but otherwise upheld it in past cases.
