LOCKPORT – A man who broke into a home on Willow Avenue in Niagara Falls on July 27 pleaded guilty to a reduced charge Friday in Niagara County Court.

Donald E. Rubin, 43, of 16th Street in the Falls, faces up to seven years in prison for attempted second-degree burglary. County Judge Sara Sheldon Farkas scheduled sentencing for May 2.

That sentence will include as much as $300 in restitution for damage to a DVD player and an Xbox system. All the stolen property was recovered by police, Assistant District Attorney Claudette S. Caldwell said.
