LOCKPORT - State Supreme Court Justice Richard C. Kloch Sr. sentenced a Niagara Falls man to two years in prison Friday for having a quarter-ounce of cocaine when federal parole officers searched his home last year.
Casey C. Walls Jr., 38, of Elmwood Avenue, was arrested Oct. 28, 2015, and pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of attempted fourth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance. Kloch suggested that Walls should apply for the "shock incarceration" program of boot camp-style discipline.
Walls was on federal parole after a 2009 sentence of six years in prison for possession of cocaine with intent to distribute, and illegal possession of a firearm by a felon. He was sentenced this week in U.S. District Court to time served on the parole violation.
