Woman who attacked nurse jailed for probation violation

LOCKPORT – A Niagara Falls woman who was placed on probation in 2010 for attacking a nurse in Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center was sentenced to a year in jail Friday for violating probation rules.

Janice K. Bugay, 28, of Hyde Park Boulevard, had pleaded guilty before Niagara County Judge Sara Sheldon Farkas to third-degree assault for the attack on a nurse in the psychiatric emergency room Oct. 10, 2009. The nurse was injured badly enough to be admitted to the medical center as a patient.
