LINCOLN, Neb. -- Sarah Piccolo, the girl accused of stabbing a fellow student at Lincoln Pius X High School has plead no contest to second degree assault and was found guilty by a judge Monday.

Prosecutors amended a charge from first degree assault to second degree assault.

Piccolo then waived her right to a juvenile hearing and her right to a jury trial and plead no contest to the charge.

The judge found her guilty and set her sentencing for Oct.16.

Almost one year ago on Oct. 7, 2013 authorities say Piccolo attacked a fellow student and prompted a two-hour school lockdown.

Police say she attacked a 17-year-old student in a school bathroom with a hunting knife and a claw hammer, and then fled to Kansas, where she surrendered the next day. The victim survived the attack.
