HARTFORD — A man has pleaded guilty to first-degree assault in the unprovoked stabbing of a mail carrier in Hartford in September 2021. His plea agreement calls for up to a 10-year prison sentence, court records show.

Malique Jackson, 20, of Burnham Street in Hartford, entered the guilty plea this week in state Superior Court in Hartford. He is being held in lieu of $250,000 bond while awaiting sentencing, scheduled for Sept. 26.

Under Jackson’s plea agreement, public defender Dana H. Sanetti will have the right to argue for a sentence shorter than 10 years, court records show. But Jackson cannot receive less than five years in prison, the mandatory minimum sentence under the provision of the first-degree assault law he pleaded guilty to.
