>Teen sent back to jail in child sex abuse case
LOCKPORT -- A Shunpike Road man was sentenced to a year in jail Tuesday by Niagara County Judge Sara Sheldon Sperrazza for violating probation in a child sexual abuse case.
Keith R. Swartzlander, 19, served six months in 2004 on his guilty plea for aggravated second-degree sexual abuse. He had 4 1/2 years left on probation after that, but violated the conditions. The molestation of a 4-year-old girl occurred May 12, 2004, in Swartzlander's home, authorities said.
