Stripper’s guilty plea to role in murder upheld

A Niagara Falls stripper, who pleaded guilty to helping set up a Niagara Falls robbery that ended in murder, is not entitled to cancel her plea, the Appellate Division of State Supreme Court ruled Friday.

Chastity L. Wilson, 24, who is serving 13 years in prison for attempted first-degree burglary, refused to testify at the 2012 trial of Matthew A. Davis, who was convicted of murder in connection with the Aug. 22, 2011, death of Antoine M. Bradberry. 41, in a fight in his apartment.

Wilson and Teara D. Fatico, Davis’ mistress, admitted that they went to Bradberry’s apartment to scout it out and check on whether he had anything worth stealing. Davis, now 39, tried to steal a cache of marijuana. Fatico, now 24, also is serving 13 years; Davis is serving 25 years to life.

Wilson attempted to argue on appeal that the antidepressants she was taking at the time of the plea rendered it and her waiver of her right to appeal invalid. The five-judge Appellate Division panel unanimously rejected that claim.
