After an all-day trial, a Huron County judge found a 17-year-old girl guilty of stabbing a New London woman.
On July 24, Kori Lewis and Brandi Sailor told police they went to find the then 16-year-old victim. Lewis and Sailor said the teen threatened to stab Sailor's boyfriend.
Sailor and the teen argued, and the teen swung at her. Then, as Sailor grabbed the teen, the teen started swinging a knife.
Lewis was merely a bystander when the teen stabbed her in the stomach, she said.
She was hospitalized for several weeks and required surgery.
During the trial, Huron County Juvenile Judge Timothy Cardwell heard from at least seven witnesses, including New London police officers and a doctor who examined Lewis.
The teen testified, admitting she'd stabbed Lewis but said she did so in self-defense.
She's scheduled to be sentenced at 11 a.m. Nov. 3, juvenile court clerk Chris Mushett said.
The teen could be sent to the Department of Youth Services until she's 21, or placed in another juvenile detention center. She could also receive probation, house arrest or a fine of up to $1,000.
In the meantime, she remains on electronically-monitored house arrest at her father's home in New London.
