Lockport woman takes plea deal in painkiller case

LOCKPORT – A woman who was charged with selling the painkiller oxymorphone to a police informant March 23 was allowed to plead guilty to a misdemeanor Wednesday in State Supreme Court.

Amy M. Bragg, 31, of Walnut Street, Lockport, admitted to seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance. Justice Richard C. Kloch Sr. told her that she probably will be placed on probation when she returns to court for sentencing Jan. 27.

Bragg must repay $120, the amount she was paid for the drugs, to the county Drug Task Force. The plea was offered after both attorneys, Assistant District Attorney Peter M. Wydysh and Assistant Conflict Defender Dominic Saraceno compared notes about legal problems they had with the evidence in the case.
