Man faces felony contempt charge

QUEENSBURY — A man from Troy was jailed Sunday night after he violated an order of protection at a Queensbury home, police said.

Francis T. Gorman, 51, was charged with first-degree criminal contempt, a felony, after State Police went to a home on Main Street to check on the welfare of a resident and encountered Gorman, according to police.

He was barred from having contact with a person at the home, and has at least three misdemeanor criminal contempt convictions, which resulted in the felony count being filed, police said.

Gorman was arraigned and sent to Warren County Jail for lack of bail.

Man sentenced for role in robbery

BALLSTON SPA — A Glens Falls man has been sentenced to up to 3 years in state prison for his role in a knifepoint robbery earlier this year in Clifton Park.

Joseph O. Goldson Jr., 20, pleaded guilty to third-degree robbery, a felony, for a May incident, in which the victim was confronted and robbed by three people.

Saratoga County Judge James Murphy imposed a 1- to 3-year state prison sentence on Goldson.

The prison term is to run concurrently to two other sentences he received in Warren County.

He agreed to a plea deal that includes a 1- to 3-year prison sentence for an aggravated family offense conviction in Warren County and a concurrent one-year jail sentence for violating probation on a 2016 burglary conviction in Warren County.
