Man sentenced in Niagara Falls home invasion, rape attempt

State Supreme Court Justice Richard C. Kloch Sr. on Friday added eight years to the prison term of Dairous J. Stephens, who was charged with breaking into a Niagara Falls home, assaulting a woman with a bat and a mug and trying to rape her.

Stephens, 30, of Eighth Street in the Falls, pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of attempted first-degree burglary in the Aug. 22, 2016, home invasion. It occurred while he was free on bail awaiting sentencing for an assault and a drug deal, both of which occurred in Niagara Falls in 2015.

He eventually received a six-year sentence for fracturing a store clerk’s nose and orbital bone by throwing a full beer bottle at him in the Hometown Market, and for selling cocaine to a police informant.
