A Warm Springs man, Jimmy Dean Culps, 23, was sentenced in U.S. District Court in Portland Oct. 1 for stabbing a teenager in the neck.
   According to Craig Gabriel, assistant U.S. attorney, Culps pleaded guilty June 26 to assault with a dangerous weapon with intent to do bodily harm, a Class C felony, which took place on Dec. 19, 2011.
   "He stabbed another male in the neck in the West Hills neighborhood of Warm Springs," said Gabriel, noting that the victim was 17.
   U.S. District Judge Ancer L. Haggerty sentenced Culps to 39 months in prison and three years of supervised release after serving his sentence.
   As a special condition, Culps, a Yakama tribal member, is not permitted to return to the Warm Springs Reservation without the permission of his probation officer.
