(Ogden-AP) -- A 24-year-old inmate could get up to 15 more years in prison when he's sentenced next month for cutting off part of another inmate's swastika tattoo.

Jonathan Gardner has pleaded guilty to aggravated assault.

Two other inmates at the Northern Utah Community Correctional Facility in Ogden are charged in the November incident.

Prosecutors claim the three are white supremacist. They are accused of slicing off part of the tattoo on another inmate after allegedly learning the man had sex with a black woman.

Cases against the other two inmates are pending.
