Lockport man admits selling cocaine in 2012

LOCKPORT – A Lockport man admitted Wednesday in Niagara County Court that he sold cocaine in late 2012, and was admitted to the judicial diversion program of court-supervised drug treatment.

County Judge Sara Sheldon Farkas warned Curtis M. McCoy, 51, of Chapel Street, that he faces up to 12 years in prison if he washes out of the treatment program. McCoy, who has a prior drug felony conviction from 2010, admitted to third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance for the Nov. 27, 2012, cocaine deal.

If McCoy succeeds in the diversion program, his charge will be reduced to a misdemeanor with a guarantee of no jail time.
