KNOX — Wesley Pulsifer was sentenced to 1 1/2 to 4 1/2 years in prison for aggravated driving while intoxicated, a felony, on June 23, according to a release from Albany County District Attorney’s Office.

Judge Peter A. Lynch of Albany County Court was presiding.

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 was also sentenced to a conditional discharge of three years following his release. He has to have an ignition interlock device for three years, pay a $2,000 fine, and have his license revoked for a minimum of one year.

The case was prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney David Szalda of the Vehicular Crimes Unit.
