Teenager admits to slashing N.Y. officer's throat
SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. — A 19-year-old Washington County man admits slashing a Saratoga Springs police officer's throat with a razor blade.
Saratoga County District Attorney James Murphy III said he will ask Judge Jerry Scarano to impose the maximum sentence of 10 to 17 years in prison when Dawson is sentenced on March 12.
Police said Dawson was an outpatient who had walked away from the Four Winds mental health facility shortly before Baker confronted him.
