A 38-year-old orchard worker pleaded guilty to second degree assault, admitting to charges that he stabbed a Parkdale-area orchard owner twice in an Aug. 18 incident.
Edgar Omar Rodriguez-Garibo accepted a plea offer from the Hood River County District Attorney’s office that carries a 70-month prison sentence without credit for time served, and will ultimately lead to his deportation.
Hood River County Deputy District Attorney Carrie Rasmussen told Circuit Judge Paul Crowley that Rodriguez-Garibo was employed for six years by the female victim, and was intoxicated when the incident occurred.
Rasmussen said Rodriguez-Garibo pushed the victim down and took out a knife, stabbing her twice and causing non-life-threatening wounds. Rasmussen went on to say the victim was able to grab the knife and throw it into the orchard, at which point Rodriguez-Garibo became remorseful.
Rasmussen added that the victim, who did not attend the court proceeding, indicated she was in support of the plea resolution.
