LOCKPORT – Niagara County Judge Sara Sheldon Farkas sentenced Darnell K. Davis of Niagara Falls to a stint in the sate’s “shock incarceration” program Wednesday, holding a 1-to-3-year prison term over his head if he fails in the six-month boot camp-style program.

“I think Mr. Davis needs a kick in the pants,” Farkas said.

Davis, 20, of Pierce Avenue, had pleaded guilty to attempted third-degree burglary for his role in the burglary of a Pine Avenue e-cigarette store on the night of July 30-31, 2013. He will owe half of a restitution tab of $13,070 when he is released.

However, Davis faces more legal issues first. He and his co-defendant in the burglary, Frank M. Thomas, 33, were arrested together on a drug-selling charge June 3. Davis rejected a preindictment plea offer in the case Wednesday.

Thomas, of Memorial Parkway in the Falls, was sentenced to seven years in prison for the burglary and an unrelated gun possession charge.
