SPOTSYLVANIA COURTHOUSE, Va. (AP) — A Virginia man who stabbed another during a fight last year is now banned from the county where the crime happened.

The Free Lance-Star reports 23-year-old Conerison Jimenez pleaded guilty Tuesday to unlawful wounding in the Spotsylvania County attack. He was banished from the county.

He also was sentenced to five years in prison with all but 10 months suspended. But he won’t be returning to jail as he has already served 10 months in custody in the case. A violation of the banishment could result in Jimenez being forced to serve all or part of the suspended portion of his sentence.

Additionally, Jimenez also was ordered to pay $24,900 in restitution to the victim, who was stabbed while trying to keep people out of the fight.
