A convicted heroin dealer’s probation was revoked after he pleaded guilty to a felony charge of battery by a prisoner and misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct.
Michael J. Fischer, 34, was convicted in 2012 for selling heroin, and was sentenced to five years of probation and one-year in jail with work-release privileges.
On Sept. 4, Fischer’s probation was revoked and he was sentenced to four years in prison and four years of extended supervision.
According to the criminal complaint on the battery charge:
On May 11, Fischer asked an inmate, Alexander Rickert, to come over by him and talk to him.
Rickert refused, and believed it was a setup. When Rickert refused, Fischer punched him in the face.
Fischer told police that they should not have housed Fischer with Rickert. Fischer said Rickert called him a “snitch (expletive).”
Fischer went over to Rickert and asked him who he was talking to, and Rickert stood up. Fischer said he thought Rickert was going to punch him, so Fischer punched Rickert.
