Each term is set to run concurrent with the others, according to sentencing documents. Anderson will receive credit for time served. He also was ordered to pay $700 in fines.

Anderson was sentenced for:

• Prisoner placing bodily fluid on government employee;

• Assault and battery with a dangerous weapon;

• Three counts of assault and battery upon corrections personnel;
