SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. -- A Saratoga Springs man is convicted of attempted assault in the Saratoga County Jail for the second time, according to the Saratoga County District Attorney's Office.

Royal Hamilton tried to beat up two separate inmates while he was housed at the County Jail.

The more recent incident happened back in July and the first was in October of last year.

The DA says since this is the second conviction for a jail related assault, Hamilton will be going from county jail to state prison.

He's scheduled to be sentenced for both incidents next month. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
