A Canon City man accused in the near-drowning of three toddlers over the summer is hospitalized with a fractured skull and other injuries after being beaten in the Fremont County Jail, allegedly, by a white supremacist.
Sheriff's officials say 35-year-old Richard Steven Valdez also suffered broken eye sockets and nasal injuries in the beating that occurred Tuesday.
He had been scheduled to attend a court hearing Wednesday, but was hospitalized instead.
Twenty-eight-year-old Jack Swearingen is a reported member of the so-called "Two-Eleven" crew, a Colorado prison gang of white supremacists.
Swearingen and two other Department of Corrections inmates are suspected of attacking Valdez.
He was arrested after three children nearly drowned in a swimming pool in May as he took a shower with the mother of one child.
