Michael William Curtis Kelly, 21, pleaded guilty this morning to aggravated assault.
On April 5 he stabbed a 24-year-old man on the popular St. John’s party strip with a knife. The victim was taken to hospital and later released.
Prosecutor Mike Murray told Judge Mike Madden the Crown may withdraw some of the other charges Kelly is facing in light of the guilty plea, though he needs time to review that issue.
Kelly’s lawyer, James Goodwin, requested that a pre-sentencing report be prepared. A sentencing hearing will be held Oct. 22 at provincial court in St. John’s.
