BALTIMORE (AP) - A former Morgan State University student has received probation before judgment after entering a plea in the stabbing of another student on campus.

Court records show 20-year-old Carlos Mars of District Heights pleaded guilty to one count of second-degree assault on Monday. If Mars successfully completes his probation, he won’t have a criminal record.

Mars was initially charged with attempted murder in the March 17 fight that broke out between groups on campus.

His lawyer, Rebecca Cosca, tells The Baltimore Sun (https://bsun.md/1N6eqrh) that the sentence doesn’t ruin Mars’ chance for a career or college degree.
