The December assault of Lockport High School athletic director Pat Burke has ended with a prison sentence for the two teens responsible for the assault.

The pair, who were both granted youthful offender status, were ordered to serve one to three years in state prison in the “shock incarceration” program.

If they complete the six-month program, they will be paroled, as per court order. If they fail to complete the program satisfactorily, however, they will serve the full term, although they will both be eligible for parole after 12 months.

The youths assaulted Burke and monitor George Apolito on Dec. 3 when they were confronted by Burke for behavior issues. The teens were reportedly both drunk at the time of the incident. Burke suffered a bloody nose in the attack. Apolito also had physical damage to his lip, cheek and hand.

The pair have been in the Niagara County Jail since they were arrested on Dec. 4.
