Angel Vargas-Mendoza, age 43 of Jamestown, was sentenced in Chautauqua County court by Judge David Foley to an indeterminate state prison sentence of 2-4 years after being convicted of second-degree attempted assault, a class E felony.

In July 2023, Vargas-Mendoza attacked the victim with a sharp metal object and caused physical injury and was charged with second-degree assault by the Jamestown Police Department. On Feb. 27, Vargas-Mendoza pleaded guilty to the lesser charge. He was sentenced as a second felony offender due to having two felony convictions within 10 years.

District Attorney James Schmidt would like to thank the Jamestown Police Department for their hard work on this case. Assistant District Attorney Andrew Molitor prosecuted this case.
