BALLSTON SPA — A South Glens Falls man who beat another man with a shovel last June in Corinth was sentenced Friday to up to 4 years in state prison.

Eric J. McIntosh, 27, pleaded guilty in January to attempted second-degree assault, a felony, for a June 23 attack that police said left a man seriously hurt and hospitalized. Police did not say what prompted the attack.

McIntosh, who has at least one prior felony conviction and was on parole for it at the time of the attack, was sentenced to 2 to 4 years in state prison by Saratoga County Judge James Murphy.

The prior felony conviction stemmed from a 2015 burglary in Glens Falls, where he targeted an ex-girlfriend's home and stole a lizard.
