Three men charged in connection with a stabbing at a party on the Santa Barbara Mesa have reached a plea deal. Sean Crane, Michael Hardy and Eddie Mesa pleaded no-contest in Santa Barbara Superior Court Tuesday. All three had faced charges ranging from attempted murder to accessory to attempted murder. Now Crane will get 7-years in prison for assault with a deadly weapon resulting in bodily harm. Hardy will get 8-years for assault resulting in great bodily harm. And Mesa got time already served for obstructing law enforcement. He's back in the military.
