LOCKPORT – A Town of Lockport drug dealer tearfully pleaded guilty Tuesday in Niagara County Court.

Jose L. Molina-Roman, 35, of Lincoln Place, admitted through a Spanish-language interpreter that he sold cocaine Jan. 10 to a police informant who visited his apartment.

The Puerto Rico native, a second-time felon, could be sentenced to as long as four years in prison when he returns before Judge Matthew J. Murphy III Oct. 7.

Another Town of Lockport man, Timothy M. Brien, 45, of Green Valley Lane, pleaded guilty Tuesday to felony driving while intoxicated. County Judge Sara Sheldon Farkas committed to a sentencing limit of one to three years in state prison; she will make the call Oct. 29.

Brien was arrested Nov. 25 after a non-injury accident in Royalton. His blood alcohol content was measured at .16 percent. He had a previous DWI conviction in the Town of Lockport in 2011.
