POCATELLO — A man who plead guilty to a 2019 attack of a Pocatello woman has been sentenced.

Drain, also known as Johnny McLeod, was taken into police custody in 2019.

Police responded to calls of a fight involving a man and woman at around 9 p.m. on Oct. 12, 2019, to find Drain had fled the scene after stabbing the victim several times. Police investigators asked the public for help finding Drain and received several tips leading them to a home on Zener Street, where Drain was arrested after a standoff. The woman was in severe condition and was transported by helicopter to Portneuf Medical Center.

Drain has also been ordered to pay restitution to the victim. A restitution hearing has been set for April 22.
