Tearful mom goes to jail for selling drugs

LOCKPORT – A woman who flopped on interim probation after pleading guilty to a drug felony was sentenced to two years in state prison Wednesday by State Supreme Court Justice Richard C. Kloch Sr.

Dallas J. Porter, 30, of 20th Street, Niagara Falls, sobbed as she was sentenced for fifth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance. Porter was charged with selling some of her Suboxone prescription Jan. 30, 2014, in Niagara Falls.

Kloch gave Porter a year on interim probation to prove that she could obey the rules, but she ended up back in the County Jail for violating them. She will face two years of post-release supervision.

The single mother of two has been to state prison before, serving four years after a 2008 conviction for stabbing a man in the thigh, rupturing his femoral artery, during an argument after a card game.
