LAC DU FLAMBEAU
- We want to correct a mistake we made in our Newscasts at ten last night and again this morning.
The story was about 31-year old James Peterson of Lac du Flambeau, who accepted a plea deal.
We wrongly said he had originally been charged with first degree intentional homicide.
He actually had been charged with attempted first degree intentional homicide, and was convicted of reduced charges.
We apologize for that error.
Witnesses told police Peterson showed up to a party with a knife and drunkenly started a fight.
Other witnesses say Peterson was attacked.
This week he accepted a plea deal.
Peterson pleaded no contest to hurting someone by carelessly using a weapon.
He was also found guilty of a second O-W-I.
Peterson will find out his sentence in August.
