Lockport sex offender given chance to earn probation

LOCKPORT – Niagara County Judge Sara Sheldon placed a sex offender on six months of interim probation Wednesday, giving him a chance to earn a full six-year probation term if he stays out of trouble.

Michael D. Niles, 23, of Walnut Street, Lockport, had pleaded guilty in June to a misdemeanor, second-degree sexual abuse, for having sexual contact with an underage girl on Aug. 3, 2014. The maximum penalty for the charge is a year in the County Jail.
