BALLSTON SPA, N.Y. – A violent 2011 sexual assault will send a man to prison.

Eric Simmons, 52, was found guilty of Criminal Sexual Act in the First Degree, Sex Abuse in the First Degree, Assault in the Second and Third Degree and Criminal Obstruction of Breathing or Blood Circulation following a bench trial in June. 

Authorities say he sexually assaulted a woman in a remote wooded area after convincing her to give him a ride home in a rain storm. 

Simmons was sentenced to 12 years in State Prison. A permanent order of protection has been issued for the victim.

Simmons' attorney said his client has expressed remorse and that he shouldn't be punished for seeking trial.
