SARATOGA - A jury in Saratoga County Court returned a guilty verdict Wednesday afternoon on two of four counts from a case where a Gloversville man was stabbed, the Saratoga County District Attorney's Office said in a news release.
Frank Soriano, 65, of Damascus Drive, Wilton, was convicted of felony second-degree assault and criminal possession of a weapon. He faces a minimum of two years and up to seven years in prison.
The jury of six men and six women acquitted Soriano of the first-degree assault charge that would have carried up to 25 years in prison, and an attempted first-degree assault charge.
The charges came from a "road rage" incident that occurred Sept. 10, 2011, when Soriano and Jeffrey Streicher, a 42-year-old from Gloversville, were driving aggressively on Northern Pines Road in Wilton, which resulted in a minor fender bender, according to police reports. Soriano ended up stabbing Streicher during the ensuing altercation.
Streicher suffered wounds to his arm, back and stomach. He was treated in the emergency room of Albany Medical Center and released the following day from the hospital.
Soriano will be sentenced Nov. 29 by Saratoga County Judge Jerry Scarano, who presided over the trial.
