LOCKPORT – A Youngstown woman who used a baseball bat to smash up a man’s car in Niagara Falls on Oct. 8 pleaded guilty Thursday in Niagara County Court.

Tammy L. Pawlukovich, 39, admitted to second-degree criminal mischief and third-degree auto stripping. The former charge will be dismissed if she succeeds in drug treatment; otherwise, she faces up to seven years in prison.

She did $2,500 damage to the car, and will have to pay $75 in restitution to the owner for his insurance deductible, and the balance to Allstate Insurance.
