NIAGARA COUNTY, NY (WKBW/Release) - Niagara County Sheriff James R. Voutour announced the arrest of Amber Richardson, 24, of the Town of Lockport, on charges of Assault 2nd (Felony) and Endangering the Welfare of a Child (Misdemeanor) in relation to an incident which took place on Wednesday, November 21, 2012.

Richardson was arraigned Thursday in Lockport Town Court, released on her own recognizance and is to return to court on December 13, 2012.
