EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - A Lane County Jail inmate serving time for burglary has been sentenced to an additional five years for his role in another inmate’s stabbing.

The Register-Guard reports (https://bit.ly/2ehtQ1h ) that 22-year-old Cody Zane Brittain, of Springfield, was sentenced Monday after pleading guilty to felony charges of weapon possession by an inmate and assault. An attempted murder charge was dropped as part of a plea deal.

Authorities say Brittain and another man used plastic toothbrush holders that had been sharpened to stab the 24-year-old victim, who suffered multiple cuts but was not seriously injured.

Brittain apologized in court for the January attack, saying he “made a bad decision.”

Brittain’s five-year sentence will run consecutive to the 3 ½-year sentence he received for stealing $1,000 worth of items from a Eugene apartment.
