ALBANY, N.Y.—A Schenectady man was sentenced to five years of Felony Probation on Thursday.

Jack Frazier, 28, rejected the people's offer to plead guilty to Felony DWI and receive two to six years in State Prison on January 16, and instead pleaded guilty.

The indictment included two count of Driving While Intoxicated, both felonies, one count of Reckless Driving, a misdemeanor, and one count of Failure to Obey Police Officers and Flagpersons.

On May 26, 2013, Frazier was allegedly driving an ATV erratically in a parking lot in Colonie. After attempting to stop Frazier, he led the police on a pursuit ending with him crashing his ATV in to a marsh in the back of the parking lot.

According to police, Frazier failed field sobriety tests, admitted to drinking alcohol, and had a blood alcohol content of .17 percent.

This is Frazier's fourth DWI related conviction. 

"It is outrageous and unacceptable to believe that a person with this many previous convictions for driving related offenses would not understand the seriousness of reckless driving and fleeing from police, and would then ultimately endanger the lives of law enforcement and other motorists," said DA David Soares.
