A press release says Compton, "who was assigned to the kitchen area, allegedly attacked Officer Johnson when she entered a storage area near the kitchen."

The TDCJ says Compton was serving time at the French Robertson Unit in Abilene after he was convicted on an Aggravated Sexual Assault of a Child Under the Age of 14 charge issued out of Dallas County in December of 2011.

Compton is no longer in the French Robertson Unit and is being held in maximum security at an undisclosed location.
