*A Michigan woman has been sentenced to jail for stabbing the father of Mary J. Blige during a domestic dispute.
Cheryl White of Battle Creek was sentenced Monday to 365 days in the Calhoun County jail with credit for 270 days already served, according to the Battle Creek Enquirer. She’ll also serve five years of probation and pay more than $17,000 for Thomas Blige’s nursing services.
White didn’t address the court Monday. In September, she pleaded no contest to assault with intent to commit great bodily harm. A no contest plea isn’t an admission of guilt but is treated as such for sentencing.
Thomas Blige testified earlier in the case that White attacked him with a knife on Jan. 23 after he caught her slashing his tires.
