Probation violation leads to prison for selling fentanyl mix

Phillip Jackson, 24, of Buffalo, who was on probation for selling drugs when he was caught selling drugs again, was sentenced to prison on Friday.

Jackson received a probationary sentence of five years in February after being convicted of criminal possession of a controlled substance in the fifth-degree. Just four days later the Buffalo Police Narcotics Unit executed a search warrant in his Buffalo apartment and recovered 87 glassine envelopes of fentanyl and cocaine packaged for sale.

Jackson pleaded guilty in May to third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and violating the terms of his probation.

State Supreme Court Justice M. William Boller sentenced Jackson to three years in prison and two years post-release supervision and also recommended shock incarceration.
