McCracken Jail Inmate Sentenced to 10 Years for Biting Off Ear

Paducah, KY – An inmate at the McCracken County Jail has been sentenced to 10-years for biting off another inmate's ear. 27-year-old Darryl Samuels of Memphis, Tennessee will serve the maximum sentence for the second-degree assault. Samuels will serve the time after finishing a 12-year sentence for first-degree rape, which he pled guilty to in January. Samuels apologized for biting Christopher Gravett, and says he plans to appeal his conviction.
