September 09, 1999

A Hagerstown woman who admitted stabbing her boyfriend last February pleaded guilty Thursday in Washington County Circuit Court to one count of second-degree assault.

Alecia Ann Foster, 25, of 111 E. Washington St., Apartment B, was given a one-year suspended jail sentence by Judge Donald Beachley, according to court records.

She also had faced first-degree assault and reckless endangerment charges, both of which were dropped in exchange for the plea, according to court records.

Assistant Washington County State's Attorney Mark Wolfe said Foster and the victim, Antonio Donnell Dobbs, are back together. They were in court together Thursday.


Dobbs was treated at Washington County Hospital and released after he was stabbed on Feb. 23, according to court records.

Hagerstown City Police went to an apartment at 37 N. Potomac St. at 2:45 p.m. that day and found Dobbs bleeding from wounds to his forehead, chest and abdomen, court records said.

Dobbs told police he had been stabbed by his former girlfriend, court records said.

Foster, who has no prior criminal record, was placed on probation for one year and ordered to pay $125 in restitution for medical expenses to Dobbs within 60 days, court records said.
