A Town of Lockport man admitted in State Supreme Court Friday that he had 0.88 ounces of cocaine when police raided his Robinson Road residence May 3.
Diamond W. Ubiles, 22, was placed into the judicial diversion program of court-supervised drug treatment, but Ubiles risks up to nine years in prison if he doesn't succeed in rehabilitation, Justice Richard C. Kloch Sr. said.
Also Friday, a North Tonawanda burglar who failed in diversion was sent to the state's "shock incarceration" boot camp by Niagara County Judge Matthew J. Murphy III.
James P. Coughlin II, 23, of Payne Avenue, will serve one to three years in a regular cell if he can't complete the shock program. He was kicked out of diversion Aug. 15 for failing to follow program rules.
