SCARBOROUGH, Maine — A Maine man accused of stabbing a teenager at a high school soccer game has accepted a conditional plea deal that will result in a misdemeanor conviction.

Nicholas Blanchard, of Scarborough, has pleaded guilty to charges, including reckless conduct with a dangerous weapon, in the October 2018 stabbing of a 15-year-old Scarborough High School student.

He returned to jail in March as part of the plea deal and was released in August.

The deal was that if Blanchard follows the conditions of the court and does not commit a crime, the reckless conduct charge will be dismissed, and his sentence will be the time he already served and one year of probation.
