"We haven't offered any plea deal in this case yet," she said. 

Police said Fascitelli was apparently released from Niagara County Jail on his initial drug charges the day before violent incident occurred. The April 30 incident led to a volley of charges including third-degree robbery, fourth-degree grand larceny, third-degree intimidating a witness, petit larceny and second-degree harassment. 

Assistant Public Defender James Rizzo called the witnessed character into question, before questioning her as on the stand. 

"She's been in trouble before," he said, without elaborating. 

Fascitelli is being held on $100,00 bail. He will next appear in Niagara County Court before a grand jury, though an appearance has yet to be scheduled.
