Admitted drug dealer seeks names of informants

LOCKPORT – Loretta J. Everett, a 64-year-old diabetic who pleaded guilty to selling her painkillers, asked Wednesday that the names of “the people who ruined my life” be turned over to her.

Niagara County Court Judge Sara Sheldon Farkas asked if by that Everett meant “the neighbors who complained about people knocking on their doors looking for you to buy drugs.” The information was not disclosed.

“Instead of being angry with this person, perhaps you should be angry with yourself,” Farkas said as she placed Everett on five years’ probation for attempted fifth-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance that occurred Nov. 7, 2011.

Farkas said she chose probation because of Everett’s poor health and lack of a prior criminal record. Everett lives on Elderberry Place, Town of Niagara.
