SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A woman who stabbed a Layton teen over the summer has been sentenced.

A judge has ordered 18-year-old Crystal Marie Hart to spend up to five years in prison for stabbing a 17-year-old boy.

She pleaded guilty to felony aggravated assault, as well as misdemeanor counts of simple assault and carrying a concealed weapon.

Prosecutors say Hart had an extensive juvenile record, including nine assault convictions.

A judge ordered Hart to pay nearly 18-thousand dollars in restitution to the victim.

Authorities say the stabbing happened back in July. Prosecutors say the 17-year-old boy was talking to Hart's boyfriend about remarks the boyfriend made about another girl when Hart suddenly attacked him with a six-inch knife.
