Woman sentenced after stabbing in Nottingham

A woman who stabbed a woman in the back has been sentenced.

Alison Harris, 50, from Nottingham, had been drinking heavily into the early hours of Saturday 15 October 2019 when she stabbed a woman in the arm and upper back, causing significant bleeding.

Police were called to Heathfield Road when the victim texted her friend to ask for help, stating she had been stabbed when she tried to leave the property.

When police attended the house, Harris answered the door with blood on her clothes and was quickly arrested.

Harris was sentenced to two years in prison, suspended for two years, at Nottingham Crown Court on Friday (10 December 2021). She previously pleaded guilty to causing grievous bodily harm when she appeared in court on 14 November 2019.

The victim has since made a full recovery.
