The man suspected of stabbing a man in Arvin in January has taken a plea deal.

Richard Posadas pleaded no contest to an accessory charge on Thursday. In exchange, attempted murder and assault with a deadly weapon charges were dropped. 

Posadas, 25, was arrested in February, almost a month after Jesse Javier Salazar was found suffering from multiple stab wounds on Cardiff Avenue in Arvin.

Salazar, 25, was treated at a local hospital and later released. 

Posadas is expected to be sentenced in April.
