Man pleads to child charges

(Continued)

Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — Free on bail, Vasquez-Santiago will be sentenced Nov. 6.

In other Niagara County Court cases this week:

• A Polish citizen living in Lockport was given a combined sentence on Monday, a result of his gulity plea in May to felony driving while intoxicated.

Niagara County Judge Sara S. Farkas placed Mariusz Swider, 37, of Sunnyside Street, on five years’ probation, but must serve the first six months in the Niagara County Jail. He also was fined $2,500.

Swider was arrested Aug. 3, 2012, in the City of Lockport and again on Sept. 14 in the Town of Lockport. In the first incident, Swider’s car ran off the road, and he was ordered to pay the homeowner $750 for lawn damage.

Swider has multiple arrests, Farkas said.

• Another case before Farkas ended in applause Monday, as she dismissed all charges against a Town of Lockport woman who succeeded in the court’s judicial diversion drug treatment program.

Victoria R. Russell, 29, pleaded guilty to a felony last summer for selling Suboxone a year earlier in Wilson. But Russell made it through diversion without a single sanction. The program is known for having a very low success rate.
