LOCKPORT – A man who violated the terms of his probation sentence for choking the mother of one of his children was sent to prison Friday by Niagara County Judge Sara Sheldon Farkas.

Jeffrey J. Farrell Jr., 23, of Washburn Street, Lockport, drew 1 1/3 to four years in prison for agggravated criminal contempt. However, Farkas recommended that Farrell should be assigned to the state’s boot camp-style “shock incarceration” program. Success there would lead to parole in six months.

Farrell, who has three children by three different women, assaulted one of them in the Town of Lockport June 30, in violation of a restraining order.
