A Maryland man charged with assaulting two staff members at the Summit Academy reform school was sentenced Thursday to time served in Butler County Prison.

Kenan M. Johnson, 18, of Glen Burnie, Maryland, was sentenced to time served to 12 months in county jail, with credit for time served from May 15, by county Judge William Shaffer.

Johnson previously pleaded guilty to two misdemeanor counts of simple assault.

He was also ordered to complete six months of probation following parole, and his supervision was approved to be transferred to his home state.

Police said Johnson attacked two staff members after refusing to go to class.

Three staff members found the teenager standing in the hallway, not in the classroom where he belonged. When the employees tried to move him along, he allegedly screamed profanities, before the incident turned violent and Johnson pushed and hit the two staff members.
