A Salamanca teenager faces up to four years in prison after being sentenced in Cattaraugus County Court for a liquor store burglary.

Carl L. Kettle Jr., 18, of Hillview Homes, was sentenced by Judge Larry M. Himelein to 1 1/3 to four years in prison for his guilty plea to third-degree attempted burglary at a store in Salamanca on April 24.

District Attorney Edward M. Sharkey said Kettle violated a prior probation sentence by committing the burglary and was also sentenced to serve from one to three years for the violation. The jail terms are to be served consecutively.

Kettle was serving probation after being convicted of a previous burglary.

Gary R. Lawton, 39, of Allegany, was sentenced to 1 1/2 to 4 1/2 years in prison and fined $4,000 for his guilty plea to driving while intoxicated in Portville on Jan. 27.

Sentencing was scheduled for Nov. 27 for Vickie L. Colley, 25, of Hinsdale, who pleaded guilty to driving while intoxicated in Ischua on April 22.

In another case, Sharkey said a hearing will be held Oct. 10 for John W. Mohr, 42, of Kill Buck. He pleaded innocent to second-degree vehicular assault, driving while intoxicated and several violations linked to an accident May 6 on Route 219 in Great Valley, where Mohr's car and another car collided and the other driver was seriously injured.
