Man Gets 20 Years For Stabbing Stranger With Screwdriver
OSWEGO, N.Y. (AP) — An upstate New York man who stabbed another man in the head with a screwdriver has been sentenced to 20 years in prison.
The Post-Standard of Syracuse reports 34-year-old Steven Haynes, of Oswego, was sentenced this week in Oswego County Court after pleading guilty to attempted second-degree murder.
Prosecutors say Haynes stabbed a stranger in an "unprovoked" attack at the Oswego County Department of Social Services building in the town of Mexico in June. Authorities say the victim is expected to make a full recovery.
Oswego County District Attorney Greg Oakes says the victim was fortunate he wasn't killed in the attack.
