Knife Wielding Attacker Faces State Prison Sentence

Posted: February 22, 2018

On February 21, 2018, a South Lake Tahoe Jury found Joshua Charles Ingraham guilty of Penal Code §664/192, Attempted Voluntary Manslaughter, and Penal Code §245(a)(1), Assault with a Deadly Weapon, with special findings that Ingraham used a deadly weapon and inflicted great bodily injury during commission of the crimes.

The verdicts stem from a stabbing that occurred on March 24, 2017, at the South Y Transit Center in South Lake Tahoe. On that date, Ingraham started a verbal argument with a South Lake Tahoe resident and challenged him to a fight. Another individual attempted to intervene, and was stabbed by Ingraham in the chest with a large hunting knife.

Sentencing for Ingraham has been scheduled for April, 23, 2018.  Ingraham faces a potential maximum sentence of 9 years, 6 months, in state prison.  Judge Suzanne Kingsbury presided over the 3 week jury trial and the case was prosecuted by Deputy District Attorney Casey Mandrell.
