Herman Street man jailed for punching ex-girlfriend

A 44-year-old Buffalo man was ordered Wednesday by Cheektowaga Town Justice Paul C. Piotrowski to spend up to 7 months in the Erie County Correctional Facility for assaulting a former girlfriend.

Kevin Blanche of Herman Street was sentenced on his misdemeanor guilty plea to criminal trespass for breaking into the woman’s Cheektowaga house last July 15 and punching her. He was arrested on burglary, assault and child-endangerment counts by Cheektowaga police for the incident in front of the woman’s 2-year-old daughter, but was allowed to plead guilty to the lesser charge.
