A 19-year-old man has been sentenced to two years in federal prison for stabbing a boy after ingesting meth.
Adam Lucas Brown of Kyle earlier pleaded guilty to assault with a dangerous weapon for an incident at his home last February. He admitted punching and stabbing a boy on the side of the head with a knife, according to court records. Brown had gotten into a confrontation with the boy, a visitor at his home, on whether he was trying to rob Brown.
Brown had also tried to stab the boy in the chest, but the knife blade got caught in the boy’s shirt. The victim, who was treated with staples on his head, said he had seen Brown use meth earlier that day.
Brown was also ordered to undergo three years of supervised release during his Feb. 12 sentencing at the Rapid City federal courthouse.
