STANLEY, N.D. – An Idaho man accused of stabbing another man near Stanley, North Dakota, last summer has reached a plea deal that allows him to avoid prison time.
Thirty-two-year-old Travis Barnes, of Post Falls, Idaho, was originally charged with attempted murder. KFYR-TV reported that Barnes will plead guilty to felony aggravated assault.
Authorities say Barnes stabbed John Daly, of Wasilla, Alaska, three times during a June 2015 altercation at the White Earth Rodeo Grounds.
The plea agreement calls for Barnes to serve three years of probation and pay nearly $7,000 to Daly for his medical bills.
