DRIVER IS GIVEN PRISON TERM IN FATAL ACCIDENT

The driver in a fatal accident was sentenced Friday to one to three years in state prison by Niagara County Judge Amy J. Fricano.

William E. Scullion, 27, of Ruie Road in North Tonawanda, had pleaded guilty to criminally negligent homicide. William L. Ramsay III, a bicyclist, was killed when Scullion's vehicle struck him from behind in North Tonawanda on April 28.

Scullion was originally charged with second-degree vehicular manslaughter, driving while intoxicated and leaving the scene of an accident.

In other cases before Judge Fricano:

Calvin Feagins, 49, of Genesee Street in Lockport, pleaded guilty to fifth-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance for selling cocaine to an undercover officer in Lockport on July 16. He will be sentenced Dec. 5.

Donald E. Prest Jr., 28, of Orient Street in Medina, was sentenced to five years' probation and fined $1,000 after pleading guilty to aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle in a Lockport accident Dec. 8, 1995. Originally, he also was charged with driving while impaired and following too closely.

Prest will be electronically monitored at home for six months. He also must spend one full weekend and three Sundays a month in the county work program during that period; he must submit to random drug and alcohol testing; and he must attend one meeting of the Victim Impact Panel.
