North Tonawanda man pleads guilty in 2011 drug deal

LOCKPORT – A man who struggled in North Tonawanda Drug Court for 2½ years before being ejected from the program pleaded guilty to a felony Friday in Niagara County Court.

Judge Sara Sheldon set sentencing Jan. 22 for Christopher M. Kindron, 35, of Warner Avenue.

He could have won a misdemeanor plea with a success in the drug court treatment program, but failed to do so, Assistant District Attorney Peter M. Wydysh said. Kindron, who sold Suboxone to a police informant in North Tonawanda Aug. 22, 2011, pleaded guilty to attempted fifth-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance and risks up to 18 months in state prison.
