LA CROSSE, Wis. (AP) - A man convicted of stabbing a University of Wisconsin-La Crosse student after trying to steal his pizza has been sentenced to nine years in prison.
A La Crosse Tribune report says a jury convicted 24-year-old Anthony M. Lee of five charges, including burglary and second-degree reckless endangerment. He was sentenced Friday.
Prosecutors say Bradley Scholl was eating pizza with his roommate last year when Lee and another man broke into their apartment and demanded the pizza. One of the men stabbed Scholl in the face, and the 22-year-old says the blade was inches from vital arteries in his neck and brain.
Lee's family and lawyer asked the judge to give Lee mental-health treatment.
Lee apologized to Scholl "even though I had nothing to do with" the stabbing.
