Lewiston burglar to be treated for drug addiction in prison

LOCKPORT – A Lewiston burglar who failed to complete a court-supervised drug treatment program will try a prison-supervised program next.

Niagara County Judge Sara Sheldon on Wednesday sent Daniel R. McGill, 22, to the state prison system’s secure drug treatment facility for a 90-day stint. If McGill doesn’t successfully complete it, he’ll serve on and a third to four years in a regular cell, although he’s already served about a year in local jails, which counts toward the sentence.

McGill, 22, of Cayuga Street, Lewiston, had pleaded guilty in 2013 to third-degree burglary for breaking into a house on Oak Hill Drive in Lewiston. He continued to use drugs while in the local judicial diversion program. However, he thanked Sheldon for giving him a chance at the program and said it did him a lot of good.
