GRAND HAVEN, MI (WHTC) - A 22-year-old Holland man given a second chance at freedom has apparently squandered it in the heat of an argument that turned violent. Angel Moreno Junior had just had a resisting and obstructing conviction stemming from a police bust in December of 2008 overturned by a state Supreme Court ruling when he got involved in a scuffle at his West 31st Street home last April 25th with an unnamed, 19-year-old Zeeland man. The victim was stabbed several times in the torso by a penknife with a three inch-long blade, but his wounds were treated at Holland Hospital, and he was released. Six weeks ago, Moreno agreed to a deal with prosecutors in which he pled guilty to felonious assault in exchange for having more serious counts against him dropped. He could still land in prison for between two and 17 years when he is sentenced this morning by Ottawa County Circuit Court Judge Jon Hulsing.
