A woman has been sentenced to a year of probation for attacking a fellow exotic dancer in the face with a stiletto heel at an Ohio club.

In a deal with prosecutors, 22-year-old Chetania Davis pleaded guilty in Akron Tuesday to a misdemeanor assault charge in the April 17 incident. She was originally charged with more serious felonious assault, which could have brought up to eight years in prison if convicted.

Prosecutors say Davis used the shoe to strike the other woman several times in the club dressing room, causing wounds that required seven staples.

Defense attorney Tom DiCaudo maintains Davis was defending herself during a fight. But he says she took the plea to move on with her life.

The judge also suspended a six-month jail sentence.
