Stabbing attack on three US Marines gets defendant 4-year prison sentence

A California man was sentenced to four years in prison for stabbing three Marines outside a bar in August, according to reports.

Alexis Moreno Aguirre pleaded guilty Monday to felony counts of assault with a deadly weapon other than a firearm. A third felony assault charge and sentencing enhancements for causing great bodily injury were dismissed.

The confrontation between Aguirre and the servicemen -- two 21-year-old men and a 23-year-old man -- occurred just after 1 a.m on Aug. 3 in San Clemente, a coastal Southern California city 30 miles north of Marine Corps base Camp Pendleton.
