Man sentenced in July stabbing


WALLA WALLA — An alleged gang affiliate who was accused of stabbing a man has been sentenced in Superior Court to time-served after pleading guilty last month to a felony-riot charge.

Brian Lamprea was ordered to spend 74 days in the County Jail, but was given credit for that amount.

The jail term was recommended by the prosecution and imposed Monday afternoon by Judge Scott Wolfram.

Lamprea could have received up to a year under state law.

Wolfram also ordered him to pay a total of more than $2,800 in restitution, fees and costs, and was placed on a year of community custody, a form of probation.

Lamprea, 19, pleaded guilty Jan. 28 to the riot charge. He didn’t admit guilt, but acknowledged the prosecution has evidence that could convict him.

Police said Lamprea and about 10 other people attending a party early July 5 in the 1100 block of West Cherry Street chased Andrew A.S. Carroll and two of his male relatives from the gathering to the area of 12th Avenue and Cherry.

There, Lamprea stabbed Carroll on his right wrist with a pocket knife, according to authorities. Carroll was treated by ambulance paramedics, but wasn’t taken by them to a hospital.

Carroll reportedly told officials he knew that gang members were present at the party because of jerseys they commonly wear and what they were saying, and for some reason they started chasing him and his two relatives from the house.

Carroll and his relatives are not known gang members, police said.

Lamprea was charged in August with riot and second-degree assault, but wasn’t booked into the County Jail until late November when he turned himself in.

The assault charge was dismissed in a plea agreement.

Lamprea remains in the County Jail on a different charge being handled in Walla Walla County District Court, according to his attorney, Jerry Makus.
