A 73-year-old man who stabbed a woman near Belmont Park in 2014 was sentenced Dec. 14 to 881 days already spent in jail and was to be released to a senior citizen supervision program.

Terrance Alphonce Behan was placed on three years probation by San Diego Superior Court Judge Dan Link, who ordered he be released from jail only with a representative of the senior citizen program.

Behan was still in jail Thursday, but was expected to be released when the representative shows up at the George Bailey Detention Facility. He received credit for time served.

Behan stabbed the woman, 54, in the 3000 block of Mission Boulevard on July 18, 2014, after claiming the woman’s smoking bothered him, which was mentioned in court. He pleaded guilty Nov. 2 to assault with a deadly weapon, and a criminal threat count was dismissed.

Behan faced a maximum term of four years in prison. Behan was determined to have regained his mental competency some months ago after receiving treatment and psychiatric medications after he was committed to Patton State Hospital in April 2015.
