WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. A White Plains man was sentenced to 15 years in state prison Thursday for the attempted murder of a female case worker from St. Vincent's Hospital in Harrison, Westchester County District Attorney Janet DiFiore announced.
Jamile Wilson, 28, was charged with second-degree attempted murder, a class "B" violent felony, and faced up to 25 years in state prison.
On Jan. 19, 2011, the case worker, 48, went to Wilson's apartment for a scheduled visit and he attacked her with a knife after becoming angry. He stabbed her several times and slashed her in the face, neck, chest and abdomen.
The case worker called 911. White Plains police responded to the apartment and arrested Wilson.
She was taken to Westchester Medical Center, where she had multiple surgeries that saved her life but left her with permanent physical injuries and scars, despite plastic surgery.
Assistant District Attorney Timothy Ward, chief of the Career Criminal Bureau, prosecuted the case.
