A Gage County Court judge ordered 21-year-old Jessalyn Stierwalt to
be released from jail so she can enter a diversion program.

Stierwalt faces a charge of conspiracy to commit assault in the July 5 stabbing that she allegedly solicited. She could face up to five years in prison if convicted.

Stierwalt was stabbed in her shoulder and abdomen by two friends.

Stierwalt told authorities she was drunk at the time and asked her friends to stab her because she needed time to sober up before her probation appointment.

The two friends have also been charged.
