Woman gets prison for selling pot

A Cuba woman was sentenced to prison Monday for selling marijuana Feb. 21 in the City of Olean.

Nicole Shaffer, 34, was sentenced by County Judge Larry M. Himelein as a repeat felon to serve 1 1/2 years in prison on her conviction of third-degree criminal sale of marijuana.

The sale involved more than 25 grams of marijuana. Once released from prison, Shaffer will face a year of post-release supervision.

Jesse J. Sherlock Jr., 27, being held in the county jail, was sentenced as a repeat felon to serve two to four years in prison for his conviction of second-degree assault Jan. 15, 2005, in Hinsdale.

During the incident, a police officer was injured.

Sherlock must also pay restitution for costs to extradite him from another state, damage to a police patrol car and the officer's cell phone.

Sherlock was also sentenced to serve a concurrent one-year term for his conviction of resisting arrest.

Nicole Karl-Lebrenz, 34, of Olean, being held in the county jail, pleaded guilty to second-degree forgery and petit larceny March 2, when she stole a pad of physician prescription forms, and on April 10, when she attempted to fill a forged prescription. Both acts were in the City of Olean.

In other cases, three people pleaded guilty to driving while intoxicated and will be sentenced Sept. 10.

They are Brian Lay, 40, of Salamanca, on April 20 in the City of Salamanca; Melissa M. Faust, 29, of Conewango, on April 13 in Conewango; and John Lavrey, 45, of Machias, on April 20 in Machias.
