LOCKPORT MAN SENTENCED TO 41/2 YEARS TO LIFE

A Lockport man who was convicted by a County Court jury of selling cocaine twice in October 1993 and stealing a pager-transmitter valued at $1,750 was sentenced to a lengthy prison term Monday by Erie County Judge
David Mahoney.

Noel Ubiles, 25, of 242 Washburn St. was sentenced to two concurrent prison terms of 4 1/2 years to life for his convictions on two counts of second-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance. They stemmed from the sales of 0.66 ounces and 0.87 ounces of cocaine to undercover police agents on Oct 22 and 29, 1993.

Also to be served concurrently are prison terms of one to three years for his convictions on fourth-degree grand larceny, involving the Nov. 4, 1993, theft of the pager-transmitter from the Niagara County Drug Task Force, and another charge of tampering with a
witness.

His jury trial in December resulted in convictions on all four counts on Dec. 23, with Judge Mahoney substituting for Niagara County judges.
