LOCKPORT – Three years in state prison and three years of post-release supervision was the sentence Friday for a Niagara Falls woman who stabbed two men last year.

Niagara County Judge Sara Sheldon Farkas imposed the sentence on Amanda M. Henry, 28, of Ferry Avenue, who had pleaded guilty to second-degree assault. The attacks occurred on Henry’s birthday, July 7, 2012, and she was intoxicated when she started a verbal altercation with them, attorneys said.

In another knifing case, Farkas assigned Shawnquilla N. Armstrong to three years’ probation, after she impressed the judge with her conduct during a nearly four-month interim probation stint.

“I really thought you were just a little girl thug, but you’re not,” Farkas told Armstrong, 20, of Ninth Street in the Falls. She pleaded guilty to third-degree assault after inflicting a C-shaped cut from the cheekbone to the jaw of her 19-year-old cousin with a razor blade on June 12, 2012.
