LOCKPORT – A Niagara Falls woman who moved to Florida after admitting to her third probation violation in a stabbing case was sentenced to one to three years in state prison Friday by Niagara County Judge Sara Sheldon Farkas.

Latoya Lane, 33, had pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of attempted second-degree assault for the Nov. 9, 2006, knife and bottle attack on another woman, not far from Lane’s 18th Street home.

Farkas placed her on five years’ probation, a term that was extended because of repeated violations. A bench warrant was issued after Lane failed to show up for sentencing in September 2012. Friday, Assistant Public Defender A. Joseph Catalano said Lane went to Florida to handle some family issues.
