LOCKPORT – A Town of Niagara burglar who had been rated a success in the judicial diversion program of court-supervised drug treatment was sentenced to nine months in the Niagara County Jail Thursday, after violating probation by continuing to use drugs.
Jordan A. Waldeck, 22, of Liberty Avenue, was sentenced by County Judge Sara Sheldon for second-degree criminal trespass. Waldeck was placed on probation in May 2014 after Sheldon found he was “marginally compliant” with the diversion rules. Waldeck had entered a trailer home in the former Sabre Park mobile home community in 2011.
Also Thursday, Emanuel L. Rogers, 34, of Niagara Falls, was allowed to reduce his burglary plea to second-degree criminal trespass for his role in burglarizing a vacant home on Fourth Street in the Falls on Nov. 28, 2012. Rogers also was rated a success in diversion and is to be sentenced by Sheldon Sept. 3. Rogers’ brother, Malique L. Rogers, 39, was sentenced last year to three to six years in prison for the burglary and a credit card theft. He died April 29 in a Watertown hospital.
