PRINEVILLE, OR -- A 49-year-old Prineville woman has been convicted of stabbing her boyfriend in November 2017. Larisa Rollins was sentenced this week to nearly six years in prison.
Crook County D.A. Wade Whiting says Rollins had been drinking much of the day, before accusing her roommate and boyfriend of having a romantic relationship. Over the course of several hours, she destroyed property, yelled at the two and locked them out. Shortly after the got back into the house, investigators say she ran at the victim with a steak knife, stabbing him in the back and striking him a total of eight times. He was hospitalized several days and required surgery, but survived.
Rollins claimed self-defense. But, after a two-day trial, she was found guilty on all counts. Rollins was convicted of Assault and Unlawful Use of a weapon; Whiting says both offenses constitute Domestic Violence. She was sentenced Tuesday to 70 months in prison without the possibility of early release. She was also ordered to serve three years post-prison supervision.
