BRUNSWICK — A 34-year-old Brunswick woman who police say stabbed her boyfriend in the chest at their home on Madeline Drive last May will spend 30 days in jail after pleading guilty earlier this month to misdemeanor domestic violence assault.

Nicole Hubert, 34, was initially charged with Class A elevated aggravated assault on May 22, 2011, after Brunswick police said she stabbed her then-37-year-old boyfriend in the chest at their home on Madeline Drive.

Police alleged that following the incident, which occurred at approximately 2 a.m. that day, Hubert and a male witness then began to drive the victim to Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston, but that while en route, Hubert jumped out of the moving vehicle on Soper Road in Durham.

At the time, then-Brunswick Police Cmdr. Marc Hagan said an ambulance took the three to CMMC.

Maine State Police responded to the hospital, but after troopers determined that the stabbing occurred in Brunswick, the investigation was transferred to Brunswick detectives.

In September, a Cumberland County grand jury indicted Hubert for Class B aggravated assault for the May incident.

Hubert pleaded guilty on Jan. 19 to misdemeanor domestic violence assault before Justice Joyce Wheeler and was sentenced to 364 days in jail with all but 30 days suspended, with one year of probation to follow, a spokeswoman for the Cumberland County District Attorney’s office confirmed on Monday.

In an email Tuesday to The Times Record, Assistant District Attorney Anne Berlind, who prosecuted the case, wrote, “The plea agreement was reached after considering strengths and weaknesses of the evidence, potential defenses, the risks of going to trial, and the defendant’s lack of any criminal record.”
