Fox sentenced to prison for stabbing incident

CRYSTAL FALLS—A 26-year-old woman arrested after a stabbing incident outside an Iron River bar in October 2018 was sentenced to prison in Iron County Trial Court on June 10.
    Rachel Catherine-Rebecca Fox, who was living in Iron River at the time of the incident, was sentenced by Judge Donald Powell to 36 months to 7½ years in prison for carrying a dangerous weapon with unlawful intent with a credit for 61 days served.    
    Fox also was sentenced to 12 months in jail for aggravated assault and 12 months in jail for resisting and obstructing, both of which will run concurrent to the prison term.
    As part of the plea agreement, one count of assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder (a 10-year felony) and one count of felonious assault (a four-year felony) were dismissed.
    At an earlier hearing, Prosecuting Attorney Melissa Powell stated that Fox relocated to the area in June 2018 after she got out of prison and moved in with her girlfriend, a local woman who was on parole at the time of the incident.
    Prior to sentencing, defense attorney Abbey Anderson spoke a bit about her client’s background.
