Sanborn man sentenced to state prison in prescription fraud

LOCKPORT – A man who was ejected from the judicial diversion program of court-supervised drug treatment after being accused of stalking a program staffer was sentenced Thursday to 2½ years in state prison and two years of post-release supervision.

Scott M. Goodman, 39, of Cambria-Lewiston Town Line Road, Sanborn, denied the stalking allegation Thursday, saying his ex-wife made it up. He had pleaded guilty in June 2013 to fifth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance for obtaining a supply of painkillers from a pharmacist hew knew by using his neighbor’s empty prescription bottle for a refill at the CVS store in Sanborn on Nov. 12, 2012.

Niagara County Judge Matthew J. Murphy III imposed the prison term on Goodman, a second-time felon who was placed on five years’ probation in 2008 for cocaine possession.
