An Olean man has been sentenced in Cattaraugus County Court to up to seven years in state prison on weapons and drug charges.

Michael P. Kelley, 39, of South Union Street, was sentenced by Judge Larry M. Himelein to serve from 2 1/3 to seven years in prison for his guilty plea to fourth-degree attempted criminal possession of a controlled substance and from 1 1/3 to four years in prison for his guilty plea to third-degree attempted criminal possession of a weapon, Aug. 12 in Olean.

District Attorney Edward M. Sharkey said the sentences are to be served consecutively.

Kelley was on the Ten Most Wanted list for the Cattaraugus County Sheriff's Department and was recently taken into custody.
