LOCKPORT – Two men who violated probation in separate assault cases were incarcerated Friday.
In State Supreme Court, Justice Richard C. Kloch Sr. sentenced Johnny Q. Russell, 19, of John Street, Lockport, to four years in state prison and three years of post-release supervision for second-degree assault. Russell failed to obtain counseling and a high school equivalency diploma as ordered in the wake of his guilty plea to stabbing a tennage boy twice in Lockport in June 2012.
Niagara County Judge Sara Sheldon Farkas imposed a one-year County Jail term on Arik A. Iannone, 36, of 74th Street, Niagara Falls. He had pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of attempted second-degree assault for punching a man in the jaw while a shot glass was concealed in his fist outside a Niagara Falls bar in August 2009.
