Lawrence, Kan. – Douglas County District Attorney Suzanne Valdez today announced that Brian S. Stubbs, 25, of Lawrence was sentenced on convictions of interference with law enforcement and criminal use of a weapon.
Judge Kay Huff sentenced Stubbs to 17 months in the Kansas Department of Corrections for the inference charge, a level 9 non-person felony, and 12 months in the Douglas County Correctional Facility for the misdemeanor weapons charge. The sentences will be served concurrently with 71 days credit for time served.
Charges stemmed from an incident early March 19, 2021, in which Stubbs stabbed a man during an altercation in the man's apartment before fleeing the scene. Stubbs was found a short time later after a foot chase.
The State was represented by Valdez and Deputy District Attorney Joshua Seiden. The case was investigated by the Lawrence Police Department and the Kansas Bureau of Investigation.
In addition to prison time, Stubbs was ordered to complete 12 months of post-release supervision and to pay court fees. The judge waived attorney’s fees.
