Man sentenced to 15 years after near fatal stabbing in Seneca Falls

After a nearly-fatal stabbing two years ago, a man is sentenced to prison.

Judge Barry Porsch sentenced Christopher Freeman, 34, to 15 years in prison.

Freeman pleaded guilty to first-degree assault.


Freeman requested a two-week adjournment in order to get married before going to prison but was denied by DA Mark Sinkiewicz.

Freeman was set to go to trial and ended up pleading guilty days before it was set to begin.

In August of 2019 Freeman stabbed a woman multiple times on Garden Street in Seneca Falls during a domestic dispute before putting her and three children into a car.

He ran into a mobile home on Chapin Street after fleeing the vehicle and stabbed himself.

Officers and EMTs both used lifesaving measures on Freeman and the victim who both survived.
