A fourth person involved in connection with a stabbing over a drug deal gone bad will avoid prison time.

Thirty-four year-old Alyson Oatts was given a three-to-five year suspended prison sentence, with three years of probation, after pleading guilty to one charge of possession of a deadly weapon with unlawful purpose.

According to investigators, in February of 2012, Oatts along with Barry Lund and Justin Glidden were involved in the beating and stabbing of Lester Brown Junior, after Brown had shorted several people on a drug deal.

Witnesses told investigators that Oatts was beating on Brown with a hammer, after he had been knocked down by his pursuers.

Brown, Lund and Glidden were given prison sentences earlier this year, for their respective roles in the altercation.
