Convicted child molester Chester A. Stiles suffered minor injuries during an altercation among inmates Wednesday at the Lovelock Correctional Facility in Northern Nevada.
Stiles wasn't seriously injured and no other serious injuries were reported, said Suzanne Pardee, a spokeswoman for the Department of Corrections. No one was hospitalized.
The corrections department is investigating this incident as it investigates all physical altercations, which occur frequently behind bars, Pardee said.
Stiles is spending life in prison after being convicted March 3 on 10 counts of lewdness with a child under the age of 14, 11 counts of sexual assault with a minor under 14, and one count of attempted sexual assault with a minor under 14 for sexually molesting two girls, ages 2 and 6, in 2003.
He would be eligible for parole in 140 years.
