LOCKPORT – Ashley E. Bivins of Niagara Falls pleaded guilty Friday in connection with the Sept. 15 holdup of the Gulf gas station at Walnut and Washburn streets, Lockport.

Bivins, 22, of 21st Street, admitted to attempted third-degree robbery and was scheduled for sentencing April 17 by State Supreme Court Justice Richard C. Kloch Sr.

She was the fourth person to plead guilty in the case. Last month, Kloch sent James McClendon, 50, of 21st Street, to prison for 1½ to three years.

Lockport City Judge William J. Watson will sentence the other two defendants, both from Niagara Falls. Chelsee Williams, 18, is to be sentenced March 13 for third-degree assault, and Jessica A. Burgess, 28, March 27 on her plea to attempted fourth-degree conspiracy.
