North Tonawanda woman pleads guilty to having drugs in jail – again

LOCKPORT – A North Tonawanda woman, currently serving a one-year sentence for smuggling drugs into the Niagara County Jail, pleaded guilty Tuesday to a felony for having drugs in her cell.

Lisa M. Kish, 32, of Niagara Street, admitted to attempted first-degree promoting prison contraband and risks a four-year trip to state prison when she is sentenced March 1 by County Judge Matthew J. Murphy III.

In September, Murphy sentenced Kish to a year in the local lockup for trying to sneak Suboxone strips and Seraquel pills into jail May 21, when she reported to start a 60-day sentence for a drug misdemeanor.

The new charge resulted from a Sept. 18 search of her cell, which turned up more of the same drugs as she had in May.

Kish said she’s been in pain since a 2012 accident injured her leg. “I’ve been a little clouded with my decision-making,” she said.
