LOCKPORT – Two Lockport men admitted Friday that they cut two other men with knives in an April 12 outside a downtown Lockport bar.

Niagara County Judge Sara Sheldon Farkas scheduled sentencing Oct. 29 for Lamont C. Washington, 25, of Cottage Street, and Quentin Holliday, 21, of Locust Street.

Washington, a second-time felon, pleaded guilty to second-degree assault and was told he will be sentenced to between five and seven years in prison.

Holliday, a first-time felon and an ex-Marine who said he suffered a knee injury in the service, was promised only that Farkas will not give him the maximum sentence of 1 1/3 to four years for his plea to attempted second-degree assault. Farkas said she is keeping all other options open.

Washington served 14 months in prison in 2011-12 for a third-degree robbery conviction. His attorney, Ann Nichols, said at his arraignment that Washington suffered severed tendons in his arm in the Main Street melee.
