LOCKPORT – Two Niagara Falls burglars who were given chances to avoid prison ran out of chances Wednesday.
Jason R. Davis, 39, of Willow Avenue, was sentenced to one to three years in prison after violating probation by relapsing into drug use. State Supreme Court Justice Richard C. Kloch Sr. also ordered him to pay more than $11,000 in restitution still owed to the owners of a barn he burglarized on Fuller Road in Newfane in August 2014. The value of the items stolen was almost $13,000, and Davis did pay some of it back.
Niagara County Judge Sara Sheldon ordered Raymond D. Richards Jr., who washed out of a local drug treatment program, into the state prison system’s secure drug treatment facility for a 90-day stint. If he fails there, he will serve two to four years in a regular cell.
When he is released, Richards, 32, of Whitney Avenue, will owe $2,100 in restitution for stealing two computers in an April 2014 burglary at a home on Linwood Avenue in the Falls.
