KNOX — Wesley Pulsifer of Altamont pleaded guilty to aggravated driving while intoxicated, a felony, according to a release from the Albany County District Attorney’s Office.

Pulsifer, 30, crashed into a fence on Craven Road in Knox on March 26, the release says; witnesses saw him try to reverse his vehicle from a ditch twice before police came.

Pulsifer failed field sobriety tests and registered a blood-alcohol content of .11 percent, according to the release.

He will be sentenced on June 23, with a possible sentence of 1.5 to 4.5 years, including the installation of an ignition interlock device for three years, a $2,000 fine, and license revocation for at least one year, the release says.

The case is being handled by Assistant District Attorney David Szalda of the Vehicular Crimes Unit.
