NIAGARA FALLS – No plea is being offered in a case where a Niagara Falls mother allegedly forced her teenage daughter into a fistfight with another girl on the street two months ago.
Eula L. McCray, 34, of Willow Avenue appeared Wednesday in City Court to answer charges of third-degree menacing and endangering the welfare of a child. She was arrested on April 10 shortly after police discovered a cell phone video of the fight that had been posted on social media.
City Court Judge Angelo Morinello noted in court that the prosecution had no plea offer and the case was adjourned until Aug. 13.
McCray has maintained that her daughter was being bullied and when asked if she felt the charges were fair said, “I really don’t think so.”
She said police have not talked to her about the bullying charges.
McCray said there had been a plea offer, but now all offers have been withdrawn.
A family member noted that they did not record the video which led to the charges, but it was recorded by young man on his cellphone who posted it on his Facebook and then it went viral.
