Saratoga Springs man sentenced for role in deadly assault
A man from Saratoga Springs was sentenced Wednesday for his role in a fight last August outside Clancy’s Tavern.
James Garafalo will spend four and a half years in state prison after pleading guilty to second-degree assault.
Garafolo and his older brother Jordan punched 56-year-old Mark French causing him to fall.
French hit his head on the pavement and later died.
The Garafalos were initially charged with manslaughter, but a grand jury indicted James on the lesser charge.
