Just as his trial was set to begin, Craig Lawson enters a guilty plea.

The Ontario, Canada man pleaded guilty to a single assault charge in County Court. Jury selection was slated to begin today.

Lawson was prosecuted for causing a serious head injury to an Alden native last summer at a Darien Lake concert.

Deputies said Lawson hurled a single punch that left Jason McNeil in a coma for weeks and under intensive medical care.

Under the agreement, Lawson’s sentence is capped at one year in the county jail.

Lawson will be formally sentenced in August.
