Niagara Falls woman to serve 4 years for selling crack

LOCKPORT - A woman who failed in the judicial diversion program of court-supervised drug treatment was sentenced Wednesday to four years in state prison and two years of post-release supervision.

Louanne Cyrus, 35, of Spruce Avenue, Niagara Falls, had pleaded guilty in 2014 before Niagara County Judge Sara Sheldon to third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance for making two crack cocaine sales. She was admitted to judicial diversion but failed to complete its rules.

In another case before Sheldon Wednesday, Zachary S. Baldwin, 24, of Kerr Street, Lewiston, pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of attempted third-degree burglary for a July 8 burglary at a City of Lockport home. Baldwin, who is to be sentenced Jan. 10, must pay the victim $1,200 in restitution.

The prosecution recommended a probation sentence for Baldwin, who sought to be admitted to judicial diversion but was denied because his record includes a misdemeanor sex offense. Sheldon refused to make any commitments on sentencing.
