Concertgoer Receives One Year Sentence

August 18, 2014 Updated Aug 18, 2014 at 4:07 PM EDT

Batavia, NY (WKBW) Craig Lawson will spend one year in jail for a conviction stemming from a violent altercation at Darien Lake last July.

During a Kid Rock concert, Craig Lawson punched Jason McNeil, putting him in a coma. McNeil spent time at Erie County Medical Center in critical condition following the incident.

McNeil initially made bail and returned to his hometown in Canada, but returned to face a judge in Genesee County Court. He was sentenced Monday, receiving the maximum he could have received for this conviction.
