LINCOLN — A Lincoln man has been sentenced to a year in jail for his part in a road-rage incident that left another man with seven stab wounds.

James Frank, 35, pleaded no contest in October. He was sentenced Friday in Lancaster County District Court.

The incident began in August 2009, when Frank and his father, Tommy King, were in a truck that nearly collided with a truck driven by Andrew Wiese. The men pulled over, and a fight ensued.

Wiese was stabbed in the neck, chest, back and shoulders, but said he did not see who stabbed him. He drove himself to a hospital, where he underwent surgery.

Both Frank and his father denied stabbing Wiese. King was charged, but found not guilty by a jury. — AP
