Daniel J. Guynup, 21, of Saratoga Springs, was found guilty of one count each of second-degree assault and second-degree strangulation, felonies, along with misdemeanor assault, weapons possession, menacing, contempt and other charges, officials said.
The Saratoga County Court jury convicted Guynup of charges related to the same victim and on actions two days in June 2019 in Saratoga Springs and then again in August in Corinth in August, officials said.
The victim testified at trial that Guynup strangled her, bruised the victim's body and head and left marks on the victim's neck. The victim also testified he caused a swollen eye and bruising on the victim's forehead. He also violated an order of protection that ordered him to have no contact with the victim, officials said.
Guynup is to be sentenced in March and he faces up to seven years in state prison.
Senior Assistant District Attorney Michele Schettino and Assistant District Attorney Rachael Phelan prosecuted. Judge James A. Murphy III presided.
