Sentencing Expected for Man Involved in Stabbing at Pete's
YAKIMA, Wash. -- A plea/sentencing hearing is scheduled Tuesday morning for Robert Hamre and his involvement with a stabbing at Pete's night club more than one year ago.
Hamre is facing a first-degree assault charge for his role in an altercation that ended with five people getting stabbed. The fight broke out after a rap contest at Pete's in February 2007. Police say both sides were arguing over who should have won the rap battle. No one was killed, but all five people had to go to the hospital for their injuries.
Hamre will be the second person sentenced in connection with the stabbing. In January, Israel Santillan-Saliz was convicted and sentenced to 48 months in jail.
