BRAWLEY — A local judge on Wednesday granted a petition to reduce the prison sentence of a Brawley man convicted of a 2010 stabbing from 22 years to 15 years.

The decision by county Superior Court Judge Christopher Plourd came despite opposition from the county District Attorney’s Office and the victim’s mother, who provided an impact statement.
