LOCKPORT – A man caught selling cocaine in Lockport shortly after a judge released him from jail was sentenced Thursday to four years in prison, the maximum allowed.
“Maybe another judge will give you another chance, but I’m not,” Niagara County Judge Matthew J. Murphy III told Lamarr R. Parris, 32, of Howard Avenue, Lockport. In addition to the prison term, Murphy tacked on two years of post-release supervision.
Parris, a repeat felon, had been charged with cocaine possession when he was caught April 15 in a police raid on a home on Pine Street. On June 20, Murphy agreed to release Parris from jail after he promised to stay out of trouble, but shortly after his release he was arrested again for selling drugs in Lockport. Murphy jailed Parris without bail July 14.
