A Hamburg man was assigned Thursday to the state prison system's boot camp-like "shock incarceration" program for his role in a 2016 burglary on Brayley Road in Porter.
Patrick M. Stevens, 24, of South Park Avenue, had pleaded guilty to third-degree burglary in connection with the Feb. 15, 2016 break-in.
He will serve one to three years in a regular cell if he doesn't make it through the shock program, Niagara County Judge Matthew J. Murphy III said.
On April 3, Murphy sent Colton J. Sherman, 25, of West Eddy Drive, Lewiston, to prison for 1 1/3 to four years. Sherman said in court that he joined Stevens and James C. Lauzau Jr., 26, of Harper Drive, Lewiston, in a burglary attempt at the Brayley Road home, but they failed to enter. Sherman said Lauzau and Stevens took him home and then returned to the house and broke in. Lauzau remains under indictment.
