54-year-old Charles Guy was sentenced to six months in prison after he pleaded guilty to the offenses of aggravated assault and wounding upon 24-year-old Erron Budnah.

On Sunday, March 31st, Erron Budnah was attacked by Guy and stabbed several times to the body, face, hand and back. In court, Guy appeared unrepresented and wasted no time by pleading guilty to the offenses. He told the court that Budna had disrespected him three times before but he failed to make a report about the incidents. Instead, he attacked Budna with a knife and stabbed him multiple times. Police were called to the scene and they apprehended Guy. When police detained him, Guy told them that he knew what he had done and took full responsibility for his actions. Chief Magistrate Anne Marie Smith sentenced him to six months imprisonment for the offense of aggravated assault with a knife.  The charge of wounding was withdrawn since he saved the court time and pleaded guilty to the offense.

In mitigation, Guy was very apologetic and remorseful for his action and admitted that he knew he did wrong when he attacked and stabbed Budna.
