Woman receives probation for drugstore break-ins


Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — In another case before Farkas, a Newfane woman was sentenced to the state prison system’s boot camp-style “shock incarceration” program.

Brianna Jones, 30, of Main Street was removed earlier this year from the judicial diversion program of court-supervised drug treatment.

In 2011 Jones pleaded guilty to third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance. She sold Suboxone and oxycodone in September 2010 in Newfane.

In a case before Niagara County Judge Matthew J. Murphy, a plea deal will be offered to a Newfane man accused of running a meth lab.

Sean A. Smith, 38, was charged in January along with James O. White, 21, with third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance. Both charges are class B felonies.

The Niagara County Sheriff’s Office said the two were found manufacturing methamphetamine in a house at 6437 Hope Lane, just north of Wrights Corners.

Smith’s attorney Rodney Giove said he needed time to speak with his client about the offer, which would have Smith plead guilty to a class E drug felony. Smith returns to court June 11.
