A judge found a Duluth man guilty today of first-degree assault for taking part in the stabbing of a Lincoln Park resident last summer.

Jacob A. Curry, 20, was found guilty by Judge Mark Munger after a two-day court trial in St. Louis County District Court. Curry waived his right to a jury trial.

The court found that Curry took part in the assault of Wilbert Williams in the area of 22nd Avenue West and Second Street on June 26.

The crime is punishable by a guideline sentence of seven years, two months in prison.

Curry is being held in the St. Louis County Jail pending his March 5 sentencing.

Williams suffered several serious stab wounds to his torso that required emergency surgery, police said, and was left with a 12-inch abdominal scar.

Two other Duluth men also face charges for allegedly taking part in the assault -- Devin M. Reinke, 20, is scheduled for a jury trial on March 3 and Scott Pennington, 21, is scheduled for a jury trial on April 21.
