Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — County Court

Inmate offered plea for guard assault

A plea deal has been offered to a Lockport man accused of assaulting a Niagara County Jail guard.

Ramone D. Walker, 37, Crosby Avenue, will return Sept. 25 to Niagara County Court. Walker was offered a deal that would involve him pleading guilty to attempted assault of a police officer, a class D felony. Under the plea, Walker would waive his right to appeal and admit to being a second felony offender.

Last summer, while in jail awaiting action on a drug charge, Walker allegedly fought with a guard who tried to take away tobacco that a visitor had passed to Walker. The officer suffered a fractured vertebra.

In February, Walker pleaded not guilty to second-degree assault and promoting prison contraband.

In another case before Judge Matthew J. Murphy III, a Wilson woman admitted to a violation of probation.

Patricia A. Bundy, 66, of Doorwood Park, was sentenced to five years probation and four weekends in the Niagara County Jail after she pleaded guilty in 2010 to stealing more than $7,000 from a male relative who suffers from Alzheimer’s.

Bundy was charged by Niagara County Sheriff’s deputies after they found that she and Horning forged checks between December 2008 and March 2009. She pleaded guilty in September to fourth-degree grand larceny.

Bundy was also ordered to pay $3,500 in restitution to the victim, but was unable to keep up with the payments, leading to the violation. Murphy lowered the monthly payments to $50 a month and extended the probation time.
