Buffalo News reported
Nicholas D'Angelo, 30, will serve six months in jail and will be sentenced to 10 years of a special type of probation for sex offenders as part of a plea agreement reached with the Erie County District Attorney's Office, details of which attorneys unveiled in court.
He also will be placed on the state's sex offender registry, will surrender his law license – which would have been revoked for seven years upon conviction – and promises not to attempt to get his license back.
All three victims attended the court proceeding and approved of the plea agreement, Assistant District Attorney Lynette M. Reda said in court.
The six months of incarceration is the longest period of jail time possible under state law for people who also get 10 years of sex offender probation, Reda said.
