 Saying he "messed up," a Gasport man was given a 10-year sentence in state prison on Wednesday after an incident in which he hit a man with a baseball bat and tied up a couple with a vacuum cleaner cord last December.

33-year-old John Corra admitted he was on drugs at the time, and he has a history of mental health issues.

He pleaded guilty to attempted first-degree burglary last month. On the night of the attack, Corra stole the couple's SUV, drove it into a ditch, and then tried to flee on foot.
