Jose Linares attacks defense attorney during sentencing

Jose Linares attacks prosecuting attorney during sentencing

YAKIMA Wash. -- A Sunnyside man was scheduled to be sentenced today for attacking corrections officers but that's been delayed because police say he attacked his own attorney today.

27-year-old Jose Linares was found guilty by a jury last week on third degree assault charges for punching two corrections officers.

In April Linares was found guilty of second-degree assault with a deadly weapon for stabbing a man outside of a Sunnyside laundromat.

His sentencing for assaulting the corrections officers is now scheduled for June 14.
