The Ballston Spa man who sexually assaulted a woman in 2011 was sentenced to 12 years in prison.
52-year-old Eric Simmons was found guilty of assaulting a woman who had been giving him a ride home in a rainstorm.
Officials said that the woman eventually broke free of Simmons during the attack and took off in her vehicle.
It took nearly two years for Sheriff's Deputies to locate Simmons who was in Tennessee.
