A Binghamton man is sentenced to state prison after he hit a woman with a metal baseball bat.

According to the Broome County District Attorney, Josie Valdes-Pica was sentenced to seven years in state prison and five years of post-release supervision after previously pleading guilty to the charges of Attempted Assault in the 1st degree, Assault in the 2nd degree, and Assault in the 3rd degree in February.

Those charges stemmed from an incident in November 2022 in which Valdes-Pica struck a woman multiple times with a bat.
