Stabbing In La Salle Leads To Prison Sentence

Posted by wlpo on June 18, 2010

A La Salle man is off to prison after admitting to an attempted armed robbery.

26 year old Brandon Atkinson was sentenced Thursday to 15 years in prison after pleading guilty to a March 17th stabbing on 1st street in La Salle.  He and Julian Molina were arrested for trying to rob a 17 year old boy from Mendota by stabbing him multiple times.  Molina is accused of holding down the victim and was sentenced to boot camp earlier this month.  Atkinson was given a much stiffer sentence because of a prior criminal history.

The teen was taken to St. Francis Medical Center in Peoria for treatment.
