Man Sentenced to 40 Years in Prison for Attempted Deliberate Homicide

Posted: Updated:
BUTTE -

A Butte man who pleaded guilty to trying to kill a woman with a knife will be spending the next 40 years of his life at the Montana State Prison.

Butte-Silver Bow County Judge Brad Newman sentenced 26-year-old Jesse Harrison to 40 years behind bars Thursday.

According to court documents, in February Harrison attacked Sierra Sanders, repeatedly stabbing her with broken glass.

At the time, the victim and Harrison were living together, they also share a child.

With the help of her friends, the victim was able to escape and was transported to the hospital.

When police responded they found Harrison semi-conscious on a bed after cutting his own wrists.

In September, Harrison pleaded guilty to attempted deliberate homicide with the use of a weapon.

A pre-trial agreement was supposed to send Harrison to prison for 30 years, but Judge Newman declined to follow the agreement.

Instead Harrison was sentenced to the state prison for 30 years for attempted deliberate homicide with a 10 year sentence to run consecutively for assault with a weapon.

Harrison will receive credit for time served in the county jail.
