LOCKPORT – Niagara County Judge Sara Sheldon Farkas on Monday sentenced Charles K. Schuman to two years in the County Jail.

Schuman, 29, of Washington Street, Lockport, had pleaded guilty to first-degree criminal contempt and attempted second-degree assault to settle a domestic violence indictment that accused him of violating restraining orders and assaulting his former girlfriend July 29, Sept. 1 and Sept. 15.

“His past is not something that would recommend himself to probation,” Assistant Public Defender Matthew P. Pynn said.

Farkas could have sent Schuman to state prison for up to eight years.
