Jamestown Resident Sentenced Following 2022 Assault

A Jamestown resident is headed to prison following an assault two years ago in the city.

According to District Attorney Jason Schmidt, Codie Swartz, 24, was sentenced Monday by Judge David Foley to a determinate state prison sentence of four years with three years of post-release supervision after he was convicted of second-degree assault, a class D violent felony.

On July 30, 2022 a fight broke out at the Wine Cellar in the city of Jamestown where four individuals were injured. Mr. Swartz attacked one of the victims and injured three others that attempted to break up the fight.

The Jamestown Police Department located Swartz after he fled from the scene. He was charged with three counts of second-degree assault and one count of first-degree attempted assault by a Chautauqua County Grand Jury in January 2023.

On Oct. 5, 2023, Swartz pled guilty to one count of second-degree assault. The other charges were covered by this plea.

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