NT man admits to two felonies in incidents with ex-girlfriend

LOCKPORT – A man who twice violated a restraining order obtained by his former live-in girlfriend pleaded guilty to two felonies Monday in Niagara County Court.

David L. Vigrass, 40, of 15th Avenue, North Tonawanda, admitted to first-degree criminal contempt and attempted third-degree burglary. County Judge Sara Sheldon said she will sentence him to no more than two years in the County Jail when Vigrass returns to court June 11. In the meantime, he’s being held in lieu of $3,000 bail.

Vigrass was charged with menacing the woman Nov. 19 and entering their former apartment on Mead Street in North Tonawanda through the window Dec. 16. On the latter occasion, Vigrass said he took the woman’s cellphone but eventually gave it back.
