Another suspect in Northwestern Michigan College stabbing sentenced

Alyssa Rodriguez, 21, was charged as an accessory in the assault in February.

One of the suspects in the stabbing on the Northwestern Michigan College campus was sentenced to one year in jail.

Alyssa Rodriguez, 21, was originally charged with assault with intent to rob, conspiracy to assault with intent to rob, and accessory after the fact.

In exchange for her plea of guilty to accessory after the fact, and an agreement to testify against her co-defendants, the other charges were dropped.

Police say Rodriguez drove the other suspects to and from the scene so they could steal drugs from 35-year-old Dwight Thompson.

Traverse City police said Thompson was jumped by three men, hit over the head with a machete, stabbed in the left arm and also stabbed in the back.

Thompson was also arrested on drug charges after being released from the hospital. He was sentenced to spend between 21 months to four years in jail.
