SMETHPORT — A Coudersport man pleaded no contest Thursday in McKean County Court to allegations he stabbed a man, injuring him, during an early morning street fight in Port Allegany.
Antwan L. Cunningham, 36, was one of four men charged in the incident. He entered a no-contest plea to charges of simple assault and disorderly conduct.
According to Assistant District Attorney Ashley Shade, on Sept. 21, 2014, during a fight in the middle of the street in Port Allegany, Cunningham injured Kyle Bonneau, 25, of Roulette, “by cutting him during a fight, which caused him lacerations.”
President Judge John Pavlock said Cunningham’s attorney, Joseph Marasco, told him the no-contest plea was offered because Cunningham had a difficult time remembering what happened.
Bonneau, along with Christopher Taylor, 27, of Port Allegany, and Triston R. Duell, 18, of Coudersport, each entered pleas on Feb. 5 for their own roles in the incident.
Bonneau pleaded no contest charges of simple assault and disorderly conduct; Taylor pleaded guilty to charges of driving under the influence of alcohol; and Duell pleaded guilty to a summary charge of harassment.
Cunningham, who is the only one of the four incarcerated, will be sentenced at 1 p.m. Tuesday.
Pavlock set the sentencing date soon because Cunningham has already served more than the minimum incarceration set forth in the plea agreement. Marasco noted a detainer has been lodged against Cunningham for when he is released by McKean County.
Meanwhile, Taylor will be sentenced March 5 and Bonneau will be sentenced March 19. Duell was sentenced to pay a $100 fine and have no contact with the victim.
