ALBANY – A Cohoes woman will spend the next eight years behind bars for an assault that left one person permanently blind on one eye.

Brenda Becker, 52, hit someone in the head with a drinking glass, during a party on George Street in Green Island, back in July.

She was sentenced Friday morning.

The victim suffered a detached lens and retina, along with scars.

Becker’s prison sentenced will be followed by five years of post-release supervision.
