Harris was an active corrections officer in New York City at the time of the July 16, 2022 invasion.
Harris confessed he broke into his wife's home in the Town of Wallkill in violation of a previously issued order of protection.
When his wife tried to call 911, Harris knocked the phone out of her hand and stabbed her in the chest area, causing a puncture wound to the victim's liver.

Harris fled the residence but was soon arrested during a traffic stop by police.
On Monday, Harris was sentenced to 10 years in prison followed by five years of post-release supervision.
“The significant sentence imposed in this matter is appropriate in light of the admitted violent conduct of the defendant,” Orange County District Attorney David M. Hoovler said. “This type of behavior is reprehensible for anyone, let alone a sworn corrections officer who is entrusted to protect and serve."
