Crack dealer, drunken driver plead guilty before Kloch

LOCKPORT – An Appleton man who sold crack cocaine to a police informant Dec. 29 in the City of Lockport pleaded guilty Wednesday in State Supreme Court, where Justice Richard C. Kloch Sr. assigned him to the judicial diversion program.

Brandon M. Jenkins, 32, of Hess Road, a second-time felon, risks up to 12 years in prison if he fails to beat his drug addiction in the two-year program. If he succeeds, his plea to third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance will be reduced to a misdemeanor with a nonjail sentence.

In another case before Kloch Wednesday, Patti J. Henry, 49, of Susie’s Lane, Lewiston, pleaded guilty to a felony count of driving while intoxicated, and was scheduled for sentencing Feb. 3. Henry was arrested Oct. 10 in Lewiston, where her blood alcohol content was measured at .17 percent.
