Man gets prison for assaulting officer

A Holley man arrested at least seven times in the past 18 months was sentenced Wednesday to five years in prison for assaulting a police officer.

William A. Nichols, 28, also will be on five years of post-release supervision, Orleans County Court Judge Sanford Church ruled.

Nichols was arrested in March after village of Medina police were called to investigate a complaint.

Nichols resisted arrest and fought with police, resulting in serious injuries to an officer, who has yet to return to work.

It was one of at least seven arrests for Nichols in 2020 and 2021. He also was charged in a separate assault case, charged three times with petit larceny and once with grand larceny.

Nichols received the maximum prison term as agree upon when he pleaded guilty to second-degree assault. He was sentenced as a second-felony offender.
