Battle Creek Woman Sentenced in Knife Attack on Mary J. Blige’s Father
The Battle Creek Enquirer reports 50-year-old Cheryl White was sentenced Monday to one year in jail and credited with 270 days already served.
White was charged with assault with intent to commit great bodily harm after she stabbed Thomas Blige, 63, in the neck, chest and arms during a domestic violence incident outside his Battle Creek apartment in January.
Officials said he has recovered from his injuries and moved out of state.
White pleaded no-contest in September in Calhoun County Circuit Court. In addition to the jail time in the Calhoun County Correctional Center, she was also placed on five years’ probation and ordered to complete counseling and mental health treatment.
White was also directed to pay $17,290 to Blige’s company, Mary Jane Productions, to cover nursing services the Grammy Award-winning R&B singer paid for her father.
