LOCKPORT – A Niagara Falls man who injured a parole officer while resisting arrest Sept. 29 may be headed back to prison.

Jimmy R. Carpenter, 40, of 22nd Street, pleaded guilty Friday in Niagara County Court to a reduced charge of attempted second-degree assault and could receive up to four years in prison when he is sentenced March 13 by County Judge Sara Sheldon Farkas.

Carpenter was on parole for a 2006 attempted second-degree burglary conviction. He also served four years on a 2000 stolen car charge from Genesee County.
