LOCKPORT – Travis J. Watts, 28, of Hatter Road, Newfane, pleaded guilty Tuesday to taking part in the Aug. 2 burglary of a neighbor’s home.

Last month, his live-in girlfriend, Sasha N. Botting, 23, admitted to third-degree burglary, the same charge as Watts.

Botting is scheduled for sentencing Jan. 15 by State Supreme Court Justice Richard C. Kloch Sr., but Tuesday Kloch placed Watts into the judicial diversion program of court-supervised drug treatment. He faces up to seven years in prison if he fails in drug treatment, but Kloch said if he succeeds, Watts is likely to receive a conditional discharge.

Watts, who remains in jail until his first drug court appearance on Thursday, also must pay $380 in restitution.
