Cortlandville Man Admits to April Stabbing in Exchange For 10 Year Prison Term
A Cortlandville man will spend up to 10 years in state prison after he admitted to stabbing another man in the chest during a drunken brawl at a Cortlandville trailer park.
28-year-old Tommy Greene II formerly of 1034 Route 13 was in Cortland County Court Tuesday where he plead guilty to a felony assault charge as part of a plea deal to resolve his case.
In court Greene admitted to stabbing 31-year-old Larry Eaton of Cortland back on April 21st. Greene said he didn’t remember much of the incident, only that he and some friends had been drinking at his mobile home and had ordered a U-F-C fight on television. At some point Greene blacked out and attacked Eaton.
Eaton was stabbed in the chest and sustained serious internal injuries including a severed artery, he was taken to University Hospital in Syracuse; he has since recovered.
In exchange for the plea County Prosecutors have recommend a 10-year prison term, Greene faced up to 25 years, as he is a second time violent felony offender. Back in July 2006 he was sentenced to fours years in prison for a attempted robbery conviction.
Greene will return to court September 18th for sentencing.
