LOCKPORT – A man who was admitted recently to a court-supervised drug treatment program may be ejected from it after his arraignment Friday on an assault indictment.
Teron D. Moore, 28, of Shawnee Road, Wheatfield, pleaded not guilty to second-degree assault and aggravated and first-degree criminal contempt. He allegedly violated a restraining order Nov. 29 in the Niagara Rainbow Motel in Niagara Falls by slamming a woman’s shoulder into a steel door, Assistant District Attorney Cheryl L. Nichols said.
Friday, Niagara County Judge Matthew J. Murphy III said he wants Moore back in court next week for a discussion of whether he should be kicked out of the judicial diversion program of court-supervised drug treatment. Murphy had placed Moore in diversion Feb. 4 after he pleaded guilty to third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance. Police had found him with cocaine when Moore’s girlfriend summoned them to a domestic incident in her home March 14, 2013.
