Man pleads guilty to injuring trooper in Lockport

A former Town of Lockport resident faces up to eight years in prison after pleading guilty Tuesday to two felonies stemming from a confrontation with State Police.

Corey Bilby, 29, now of Route 275, Friendship, was living on Dysinger Road in Lockport May 22, when he resisted arrest after troopers investigated an incident at an apartment house.

Trooper Shaun Fallon fell and broke his wrist while attempting to subdue Bilby, who was zapped with a Taser, according to Niagara County Assistant District Attorney Claudette S. Caldwell. After the arrest, a switchblade was found in Bilby's pocket, which constituted a felony because of his prior criminal record, Caldwell said.

County Judge Matthew J. Murphy III scheduled sentencing Feb. 6 on reduced charges of attempted assault and weapons possession.
