Lockport cocaine dealer pleads guilty

LOCKPORT – A man who sold cocaine in the City of Lockport last year pleaded guilty Friday and was admitted to the judicial diversion program of court-supervised drug treatment.

Dylan Lewis, 25, of Pine Street, pleaded guilty to third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance and was told by Niagara County Judge Sara Sheldon that he risks up to nine years in prison if he fails in the treatment program. Success would mean the charge would be reduced to a misdemeanor with a nonjail sentence.

Lewis, who agreed to forfeit $120 police seized from him, sold cocaine to a police informant Aug. 19, 2014.
