Buffalo woman pleads guilty in Lockport drug case

LOCKPORT - A Buffalo woman who was found passed out at the wheel of her car in Lockport this summer pleaded guilty to two charges Wednesday in Niagara County Court.

Sylvia A. Honeycutt, 27, of Manhattan Avenue, admitted to third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance for having about 6.5 grams of crack cocaine in her purse, as well as a reduced charge of impaired driving.

After she was awakened on Park Avenue in Lockport in the early hours of July 21, Honeycutt reportedly told police she had downed two bottles of wine. Empty bottles and an open bottle of cognac were found in the vehicle, Assistant District Attorney John P. Granchelli said. Her blood-alcohol content was measured at .14 percent.

Judge Matthew J. Murphy III admitted Honeycutt to a court-supervised drug treatment program. If she doesn't become clean and sober, she risks up to nine years in prison.
