DOWNTOWN — Two men believed responsible for stabbing a 17-year-old Inglewood resident following a Santa Monica High School football game earlier this season plead guilty to misdemeanor battery and promoting a criminal street gang.

Christopher Diaz and Kenneth Jones accepted a plea bargain Nov. 2 and were sentenced to 180 days in jail and three years probation, said Jane Robison, spokesperson for the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.

The two were initially booked for attempted murder, police said.

The stabbing took place on Sept. 25 around 9:43 p.m. as people were leaving the Samohi varsity football game against Venice High School, which was held at Santa Monica College’s Corsair Field.
