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.
