A Calhoun County Jail prisoner serving time for forgery is now awaiting trial on a charge of first-degree assault in connection with an attack on another inmate.

Larry Demond Woolf, 28, of Anniston, stabbed another inmate in the neck with a pen, according to Matthew Wade, chief deputy of the Calhoun County Sheriff’s Office.

Wade said Woolf and the victim, Willie Lee Rolley, 23, of Huntsville, were both in the maximum security section of the jail Tuesday when a fight erupted between the two around 5 p.m. Woolf stabbed Rolley during the fight, Wade said.

Rolley was taken to Regional Medical Center and later transferred to UAB Hospital for treatment, the chief deputy said.

Rolley was back in the jail Friday and is expected to recover from his injuries, Wade said.

Woolf has received 14 disciplinary actions since being jailed in August, according to Wade.

Woolf is serving a sentence for three counts of possession of a forged instrument and a probation violation, Wade said.

Rolley has been disciplined 53 times since November and was charged in March with assaulting a corrections officer, according to Wade. The chief deputy said Rolley is being held in the jail for the U.S. Marshal Service, Wade said.

Wade called this incident “an oddity” and said stabbings in the jail don’t happen very often.

“We can’t keep them from writing letters,” Wade said.

Only pens provided by a company that specifically sells to correctional facilities are given to inmates, the chief deputy said.

Woolf has a court appearance scheduled for May 6. Bond is set at $15,000, online court records show.
