LOCKPORT – Nita Snyder, a Town of Niagara woman who failed in a court-supervised drug treatment program, was sentenced to 3 1/2 to seven years in prison Friday by State Supreme Court Justice Richard C. Kloch Sr.

Snyder, 38, of Isherwood Drive, had pleaded guilty a year ago to third-degree burglary, fifth-degree criminal possession of stolen property and petit larceny. She stole a woman’s credit card April 7, 2013, and burglarized a home on Bollier Avenue in Niagara Falls the next day. She will have to pay restitution of $1,270 when she is released from prison.

Shawn M. Harris, 28, of Sy Road, Wheatfield, hopes he has better luck in the judicial diversion program. He was admitted Friday by Niagara County Judge Sara Sheldon Farkas after he pleaded guilty to fourth-degree grand larceny.

Harris stole cash and cigarettes from the Valero store in Sanborn March 7, 2013. He owes $200 in restitution and risks four years in prison if he washes out of the treatment program.
