Angola man gets brief jail term for injuring girlfriend

Samuel Urbino Jr., 28, of Herr Road, Angola, was ordered Thursday to serve a 45-day jail term by Cheektowaga Town Justice Paul S. Piotrowski on Urbino’s guilty plea to a reduced charge of attempted assault for admitting that he broke his girlfriend’s wrist during an argument Feb. 1 in her Garden Road home in Cheektowaga.

Urbino had been charged by Cheektowaga police with a felony count of second-degree assault after the incident. The judge refused defense attorney requests for probation, saying some jail time was warranted for such domestic abuse.
