3 Months Jail For Man Who Stabbed Brandon Banks

WASHINGTON (AP) — A man who pleaded guilty to stabbing Washington Redskins kick returner Brandon Banks and a friend during a fight outside a nightclub in February 2011 will spend three months in jail.

Jason Shorter was sentenced Monday in Superior Court in Washington. He will also serve three additional months as a result of an incident during which he was pulled over for speeding in May 2011 and charged with carrying a pistol without a license and other charges.

Shorter, 25, acknowledged fighting with Banks and a friend outside The Park, a nightclub on 14th Street in downtown Washington. During the scuffle, he stabbed both men with a pocket knife.

Shorter’s attorney, Barry Coburn, called him a “decent person” who intends to be a productive member of society when released.
