Saying he was confused with some of the terms of the deal, a Lockport man who had pleaded guilty after he allegedly sexually assaulted a 16-year-old girl has decided to withdraw his plea. 

40-year-old Shawn McNew of Fernwood Drive pleaded guilty to attempted first-degree criminal sexual act back in February, but said he thought the sentencing would range from one to two years in prison, but the actual deal called for a range of 3 and a half to 15 years. 

A Judge will make a written decision on McNew's withdrawal in May.
