Dover man gets 10 years for stabbing

DOVER — Jaquan Crump, 22, of Dover, was sentenced to 10 years in prison for a 2017 stabbing, the Delaware Department of Justice said Friday.

Deputy Attorney General Marie Graham secured the sentence for Crump who was convicted by a Superior Court jury in February of first-degree assault and possession of a deadly weapon during the commission of a felony. In July 2017, Crump and a woman became involved in a physical altercation in the 100 block of West Loockerman Street in Dover, the DOJ said.

During the fight, according to the DOJ, Crump stabbed the woman four times and puncturing both of her lungs. A judge sentenced Crump to 10 years in prison, followed by the completion of the CREST substance abuse program, eight months of work release, then two years of probation in the CREST after care program.
