Cressell is serving life in prison for his role in the death of Garnett "G-P" Johnson two years ago.
Late last week-- a jury convicted Cressell of unlawful wounding and sentenced him to five years in prison for beating a man just weeks before Johnson's death.
Prosecutor J-D Bolt says the conviction and additional prison time will make it harder for Cressell to secure geriatric parole at age 65.
