QUEENSBURY — A South Glens Falls man was sentenced to state prison Friday for an April alcohol-related crash in Glens Falls.

Robert J. Finkle Jr., 40, pleaded guilty to felony driving while intoxicated earlier this year in Warren County Court in connection with an arrest that came after he drove into a parked car, then left the crash scene.

Glens Falls Police located him about 10 minutes later and found that his blood alcohol content was more than double the threshold for intoxication, police said at the time of the arrest.

He was charged with felony DWI because he had at least one prior DWI conviction within 10 years.

Warren County Judge John Hall sentenced Finkle to 1 to 3 years in state prison and directed he pay $1,276 restitution.
