Gila County Attorney Bradley Beauchamp has announced that on Monday, October 14, 50 year old Globe resident Lyle Pahe was sentenced to 7.5 years in the Arizona Department of Corrections for aggravated assault.
On August 2, Pahe stabbed the victim several times while the victim was sleeping on a bench in downtown Globe. Pahe initially said that the victim attacked him first and he was just defending himself. He then changed his story several times and told investigators that he couldn’t remember what happened because he was drunk.
Pahe plead guilty to aggravated assault on September 6. At the sentencing the state recommended an aggravated term of 7.5 years in prison because Pahe caused physical harm to the victim and had a criminal history of 6 misdemeanor convictions.
