Two drug dealers are sentenced

LOCKPORT — A pair of drug dealers will spend some time behind bars after being sentenced Wednesday at the Niagara County Courthouse.

State Supreme Court Justice Richard C. Kloch Sr. gave Sharickaa Jackson, 37, of Gooding Street, one year in Niagara County Jail.

In June, Jackson pleaded guilty to fifth-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance, admitting to dealing cocaine in the town in August 2010.

Public Defender Alan J. Roscetti said shortly Jackson was arraigned, she started looking for a drug treatment program to enter.

“We haven’t been able to find one yet,” Roscetti said.

Sawyer D. Pannell, 22, Franklin Street, Olcott, was sentenced to 21⁄2 in state prison. Pannell was sentenced by Judge Sara S. Sperrazza in Niagara County Court.

In April, Pannell pleaded guilty to attempted third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance. He sold heroin in Newfane last year.

A third drug case came before County Judge Matthew Murphy on Wednesday. Laquan R. Ball, 21, of Rochester, is facing two counts of third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and two counts of third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance. Ball allegedly sold cocaine to a police informant in the city in July 2010.

Assistant District Attorney Peter Wydysh said a plea deal had been offered to Ball, that would include Ball pleading guilty to fifth-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance and waiving his right to appeal.
