The teenager who stabbed two female schoolmates in the chest in Daly City was set to be released from jail after his sentencing hearing Tuesday, prosecutors said.
Horacio Gonzalez, 18, faced an eight-year prison term in connection to the Sept. 24, 2010, incident that injured two former classmates from Thurgood Marshall High School in San Francisco.
However, a San Mateo County judge sentenced him to a year in county jail and four years probation on Tuesday. He was likely to be released the same day due to credit for time he’s already served, prosecutors said.
If he violates one of a number of court conditions, Gonzalez will be slapped with a five-year state prison term, the judge ruled.
The conditions include abstaining from alcohol, taking drug tests and having no contact with victims. He also can’t participate in a gang or wear gang colors, prosecutors said.
Gonzalez pleaded no contest in October to two felony counts related to the attack on Sept. 24, 2010.
Gonzalez and the two victims were students at Thurgood Marshall High School. According to prosecutors, he stabbed them at a McDonald’s in Daly City after they accused him and his pals of stealing a cellphone.
