Probation and Jail for Involvement in Near Fatal Stabbing
Rochester, MN (KROC-AM News) - A Rochester woman has been given a stayed 2-year prison sentence for her involvement in a near-fatal knife attack last year.
24-year-old Jami Lotti will have to serve a 127 day jail sentence and has been placed on probation for five years. She earlier pleaded guilty to a 5th degree felony assault charge in the case, which involved a 43-year-old man who was stabbed six times in the chest and back last April at a residence located near the McDonald’s restaurant along North Broadway. Lotti was accused of threatening to kill the victim if he told anyone what had happened.
The victim was unconscious and near death when he was dropped off at the St. Mary’s Hospital emergency room, but thanks to quick action by his medical team, he survived.
Lotti's boyfriend, 23-year-old Thane Robinson, earlier pleaded guilty to a first-degree assault charge for actually stabbing the man and was sentenced to seven years in prison.
