BRISTOL - A Bristol woman has pleaded guilty in an assault at Lake Compounce.

Alina Stein, 24, accepted a plea deal Monday in Bristol Superior Court that included probation with no prison. She pleaded guilty to one count of third-degree assault, which was reduced by state prosecutors from second-degree assault.

Stein on Monday was sentenced to one year in prison, suspended, and two years of probation. As part of the agreement, state prosecutors did not pursue a prostitution case against her or other charges in the assault.

Stein was first arrested after she was involved in an altercation on July 27 last year at Lake Compounce in Southington. Police were called to the campsite there at about 9:45 a.m.

Officers found a man who had a cut to his head and bite marks on his arm, according to the police report. The man, who said he had been dating Stein for the past three weeks, was treated at the scene by medics and taken to Bristol Hospital, where it took three staples to close the cut to his head.

The victim said Stein became upset with him sometime overnight and started punching him all over his body, according to the report. She then used a flashlight to hit his head while the two were in a tent together and bit his arm three times, the report continued.

While free on bond in that case, Stein was arrested again in Plymouth on Feb. 8 after she and a 57-year-old man were seen leaving Jay’s Motel, at 40 Main St. in Terryville.

After investigating, the officer found that the man allegedly paid for a motel room and gave Stein $150 for an unspecified sex act, police said. Police said they met on seekingarrangement.com, which caters to “sugar daddies” looking to meet “sugar babies.”

Prior to Monday, Stein did not have a criminal record, court officials said.
