Man sentenced to 13 years in prison for attacking Fisher Court woman

Jason Kester, 31, of Youngstown, was sentenced to 13 years in prison on Monday for attacking a 74-year-old West Seneca woman in December.

On Dec. 15, in the Fisher Court subdivision of the town, Kester forced his way into the home of the woman living there, according to the West Seneca Police Department.

Once in the home, he demanded the woman’s ATM card and PIN, before binding her wrists, upper torso and mouth, and attempting to force her into the trunk of her car, police said.

The woman fought back, and Kester reportedly ran off when a relative of the woman arrived to visit.

Soon after the attack, police released a sketch of a man based on a description from the woman. Kester was arrested on Dec. 21 by West Seneca police after they executed a search warrant at his Porter Center Road home in Youngstown.

Kester pleaded guilty Jan. 31 to second-degree burglary.

West Seneca Detectives Robert Andolina, Kenneth Morano and Daniel Crowe received letters of commendation from Police Chief Daniel Denz for their work on the case at a recent meeting of the West Seneca Town Board.
