Inmate acquitted in killing of Jessup prisoner

May 08, 1999

A man serving three life sentences for three murders was acquitted yesterday by an Anne Arundel County jury of killing a fellow inmate at the Maryland House of Correction in Jessup.

After an eight-day trial, the Circuit Court jury took about 4 1/2 hours to find David Dodson, 46, not guilty in the stabbing death of Clark Hinton on Hinton's 40th birthday, July 28, 1995.

Hinton, who was found in his cell stabbed more than a dozen times, would have been paroled at the end of that year. He was serving a 38-year sentence for forgery.
