Marlon Vitto Finneran, 25, of Broad Oak Lane in Bury, pleaded guilty to assaulting a prison custody officer in Salford on Friday, May 25.
Finneran was jailed for eight weeks by magistrates, who deemed the offence was serious because it was an attack on a custody officer at work in prison.
Ahmed Geele, 49, of Burleigh Street in Hulme, south Manchester, admitted being drunk and disorderly on Burleigh Street in Hulme on Thursday, October 25.
Geele was fined £40, but was not ordered to pay the court costs due to a lack of financial means. His guilty plea was taken into account.
