Lockport woman pleads guilty in meth case, enters treatment

LOCKPORT – A woman, who was arrested Nov. 19 in a drug raid on her Town of Lockport home, pleaded guilty to a felony Thursday and was admitted by Niagara County Judge Matthew J. Murphy III to the judicial diversion program of court-supervised drug treatment.

Chandra L. McCourt, 46, of Wicks Road, risks up to 5½ years in prison if she doesn’t succeed in the treatment program. But if she becomes clean and sober, her plea to fourth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance will be reduced to a misdemeanor with a nonjail sentence.

McCourt was arrested after state and county officers executed a search warrant and found a methamphetamine lab in the house. The raid came after a four-month investigation.
