Alexei Ramey has plead guilty to attempted assault after he tried to pay an undercover officer $500 and a pressure washer to stab a woman he thought might be carrying his child (she wasn't). He faces 3 and 1/2 to 10 years in jail.
Ramey's would-be-victim, a Duanesburg woman who turns 20 next month, gave birth last year to a healthy baby girl, said Healy.
"His intent wasn't to kill her, it was to abort the fetus," Healy said afterward.
Asked if the defendant suspected he might not the father, Healy said Ramey "believed there was a chance but didn't want to take that risk," partly because by then he had a new girlfriend who was also pregnant.
