Brownwood man arrested for his involvement in stabbing pleads guilty
BROWNWOOD, Texas -- A suspect that was one of five people arrested last year for reportedly chasing a man out of his Brownwood home and stabbing him has pleaded guilty to his charge.
Kirt Anderson, 28, appeared inside the 35th Judicial District Court Monday and entered into a guilty plea with state prosecutors, avoiding jail time. Judge Stephen Ellis sentenced Anderson to one year deferred adjudication.
Anderson was indicted last year for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon for his role in an incident that happened last April. Brownwood Police officers arrested him and four others for stabbing a man.
According to police, he entered the man's house and chased him outside. The victim was then taken to Brownwood Regional Medical Center and treated for stab wounds.
As part of his guilty plea, Anderson was charged with assault, which is a Class A misdemeanor.
He could have faced a maximum of 20 years in prison if convicted of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
