Niagara County District Attorney Brian D. Seaman announced Quennel R. Jordan, age 40, entered a plea in County Court today to a series of crimes committed in Niagara Falls in 2021.

Jordan plead guilty to one count of attempted assault in the first degree, two counts of assault in the second degree, and one count of attempted assault in the second degree. Jordan admitted to assaulting an individual with a baseball bat in July of 2021 and attempting to do the same to another person in June of 2021. The defendant also admitted to his involvement in the stomping of an individual outside a gas station in the Falls in July of 2021, and finally to assaulting a fourth individual in June of the same year.

Today’s plea resolves several cases that have been pending in County Court since September 2021. The defendant has been in custody since that time. The defendant faces between 10 and 15 years in state prison when he returns to court to be sentenced by County Court Judge Caroline Wojtaszek in July.

The cases against the defendant were investigated by the Niagara Falls Police Department and prosecuted by assistant district attorneys Christine Savoia and Laura Jordan.
