The youth responsible for the random stabbing of four people in Regina's Cornwall Centre in April has been sentenced.

The 15-year-old boy received the maximum youth sentence, which is three years.

He will serve 30 months in custody, after receiving six months credit for his time in remand.

The teen pleaded guilty last month to four counts of aggravated assault and one count of assault with a weapon.

Both the Crown and the Defence wanted the maximum sentence.

The youth cannot be named under the Youth Criminal Justice Act.
