The man accused of having sex with a 14-year-old girl and then stabbing her father pled guilty Wednesday.
According to Mason County Prosecutor Paul Spaniola, the stabbing happened after the father confronted Stephen Fairlamb about the relationship.
The father survived after an extensive hospital treatment, Spaniola said.
Fairlamb was originally charged with felonious assault, third degree criminal sexual conduct and assault with intent to murder. The plea agreement calls for Fairlamb to plead guilty to felonious assault and criminal sexual conduct, but the assault with intent to murder charge was dismissed.
The minimum sentence for these charges is a 54-months to a maximum of 15 years in prison.
Fairlamb is scheduled to be sentenced on March 11.
