Attempted cocaine sale nets prison term

The attempted sale of crack cocaine earlier this year in the City of Olean resulted in a five-year prison sentence for Frederick Reynolds in Cattaraugus County Court on Monday.

Reynolds, 46, who is being held in the county jail, was sentenced by Judge Larry M. Himelein on his conviction for third-degree attempted criminal sale of a controlled substance Jan. 29.

District Attorney Edward M. Sharkey said Reynolds must serve a determinate five-year term and will be subject to two years of post-release supervision.

Shariff K. James, 29, no known address, was sentenced to a determinate one-year prison term for his conviction on third-degree attempted criminal sale of a controlled substance on Olean on Nov. 19, 2004, when he tried to sell cocaine. He will also be subject to two years of post-release supervision after serving his sentence.

In other cases, Sharkey said several defendants pleaded guilty and face sentencing early next year:

* James J. Fye, 19, of Olean, pleaded guilty to two counts of third-degree burglary, which the district attorney said Fye and others committed between November 2004 and June 2005 in the towns of Allegany, Olean, Portville and Hinsdale and the City of Olean.
