A Corning man has been sentenced to 11 years in state prison following multiple arrests in 2020.
Kyle Horton, a 21-year-old, has been sentenced to 11 years with 5 years post release supervision after he plead guilt to assault in the first degree, two counts of second-degree assault, petit larceny and witness intimidation.
His first degree assault charge is from an incident in June 2020 when he broke into the victims home and attacked the 41-year-old man with a sledgehammer as he slept.
The second degree assault charges are in relation first, to stabbing a man with a hypodermic needle and second, attacking a corrections officer in Steuben County Jail.
Though Horton was held in jail after the attack with the sledgehammer, he had been charged and released numerous times because of bail reform.
Corning police said they have encountered Horton 20 times in a matter of months.
