A woman has been sentenced to a year of probation for attacking a fellow exotic dancer in the face with a stiletto heel at an Ohio club.

In a deal with prosecutors, 22-year-old Chetania Davis pleaded guilty Tuesday in Akron to a misdemeanor assault charge.

Prosecutors say Davis used the heel to stab her 52-year-old co-worker several times April 17 in the club dressing room, causing wounds that required seven staples. It was the older woman's first day on the job.

Police had said she was attacked because Davis didn't think the club needed more dancers.

Defense attorney Tom DiCaudo maintains Davis was defending herself during a fight. He says she took the plea to move on with her life.

The judge also suspended a six-month jail sentence.
