LOCKPORT - A Hartland man pleaded guilty Wednesday to ramming his girlfriend’s head through a wall in her home, but rape charges against him were dropped.

Justin P. West, 32, of Chapman Road, pleaded guilty to second-degree assault and will be sentenced June 6 by State Supreme Court Justice Richard C. Kloch Sr.

West had faced a 12-count indictment accusing him of raping and beating the woman during a period of several days in October. He faces up to seven years in prison.
