Man stabbed two near Wilson Hospital; state upholds convictions


(Johnson City) – New York State Supreme Court Appellate Division Third Department, upheld the Assault in the First Degree convictions and 10-year prison sentence of Tyler J. DeCamp, now 29, of Binghamton, who was found guilty of stabbing two people outside McDonald’s on Main Street.

In 2019, a Broome County jury found the DeCamp guilty of Assault in the First Degree (2 counts), Tampering with Physical Evidence and Resisting Arrest.

On December 20, 2018, outside McDonald’s on Main Street in Johnson City, DeCamp stabbed two individuals with a knife during a botched drug deal. The victims were treated at Wilson Hospital for several serious stab wounds. DeCamp fled and disposed of the knife before being apprehended by Johnson City Police.

The Appellate Court determined the evidence presented at trial was sufficient to support the guilty verdicts and that the 10-year sentence was not excessive.

“When a criminal defendant is found guilty and sentenced to prison, the work of the Broome County District Attorney’s Office on that case does not always end. A review of the trial, the filing of legal appeal briefs and arguments before the Appellate Court can take years.  Securing a just result for victims, whoever they are, is our focus,” said Michael A. Korchak, Broome County District Attorney.
