Drunken driver sent to state prison

LOCKPORT – James L. Mormino, who according to Niagara County Judge Sara Sheldon Farkas, has been arrested 12 times for alcohol-related driving offenses, was sentenced Monday to one to three years in state prison.

Mormino, 57, of James Drive, Lewiston, was sentenced on his Jan. 4 guilty plea to felony driving while intoxicated, stemming from a July 10 arrest in Niagara Falls.

It’s his second felony conviction but his first trip to state prison. “You’re dangerous, not only to yourself but to everyone,” Farkas told Mormino.
