ALBANY, N.Y. - An Altamont man has been sentenced to State Prison for driving drunk and crashing into a fence.
District Attorney P. David Soares says Wesley Pulsifer, 30, was sentenced to one and a half to four and a half years in State Prison on Monday morning.
On April 28, Pulsifer pleaded guilty to one count of aggravated DWI.
On March 26, Pulsifer was driving a motor vehicle when he crashed into a fence on Craven Road in the Town of Knox. Witnesses told police on the scene that they saw Pulsifer attempt to back the vehicle out of a ditch near the fence twice before State Police arrived.
The defendant failed multiple field sobriety tests and was taken into custody where he registered a BAC of .11-percent.
In addition to his prison sentence, Pulsifer was also sentenced to a Conditional Discharge of three years following his release from custody. He must install an Ignition Interlock Device for three years, pay a $2,000 fine and will have his license revoked for a minimum of one year.
