LOCKPORT – A Grand Island man will not go to jail for his guilty plea in a driving while intoxicated incident that occurred in North Tonawanda.

Niagara County Judge Matthew J. Murphy III on Tuesday sentenced Timothy J. Homa, 29, of East River Road, to three years’ probation, a $395 surcharge, 14 days in the Niagara County work program and 30 days of community service.

Homa pleaded guilty to a reduced misdemeanor DWI count Dec. 11, during a trial on a DWI felony indictment. He was arrested May 20, after his car became stuck on a planter box made of railroad ties in a parking lot on Manhattan Street in North Tonawanda.
