Buffalo woman admits role in Falls robbery

LOCKPORT – A Buffalo woman pleaded guilty Thursday to driving robbers to and from Niagara Falls, where they beat a man and stole a bag of marijuana he was hoping to sell for $100.

Samantha C. Przybysz, 21, of Miller Avenue, admitted to a reduced charge of attempted second-degree robbery. State Supreme Court Justice Richard C. Kloch Sr. can choose anything from probation to seven years in prison when he sentences Przybysz on Sept. 9.

The crime occurred Nov. 21 on Willow Avenue in the Falls. Angelo J. Hestor, 17, of Dumas Place, Town of Tonawanda, is scheduled to be sentenced to five years in prison for his April 27 guilty plea to attempted first-degree robbery. He had a gun, while Antoine D. Robinson, 17, of Gatchell Street, Buffalo, allegedly wielded a baseball bat in the attack on Ricky Williams of the Falls.

Robinson has been offered the same plea deal as Hestor, but he also faces separate robbery charges in Erie County and is awaiting the results of court-ordered psychiatric examinations in both counties.

Imani Hardy, 17, of Mohawk Parkway, Town of Niagara, who allegedly grabbed the bag of marijuana, was scheduled to take a plea before Kloch Wednesday, but didn’t show up for court.
