Falls man gets jail for violating terms of probation in DWI case

LOCKPORT – A Jerauld Avenue man was sentenced to a year in Niagara County Jail Monday for violating terms of probation in a felony case of driving while intoxicated.

Robert G. Minney, 36, who had pleaded guilty in Niagara County Court on April 9, was sentenced Monday by Judge Sara Sheldon Farkas Farkas. Minney’s attorney, David C. Douglas, said his client, who was serving 2½ years on probation, had successfully completed drug treatment programs and had used the car to drive to a construction job.

Douglas had urged that Minney serve weekends in jail.
