PROVO, Utah (AP) -- A former Brigham Young University student faces deportation after pleading guilty to assault charges for a stabbing in Provo Canyon.

Jumber Tsuladze was sentenced Thursday to 100 days in the Utah County Jail, then will be sent back to the Republic of Georgia. Tsuladze admitted in court to stabbing another student during a fight in April.

Tsuladze pleaded guilty to two felony charges of aggravated assault. He had faced five charges, including attempted murder.

Tsuladze is banned from the BYU campus. A cousin who was also charged in the fight and was not a student is also facing deportation.
