Buffalo man sentenced to 6 years for drug conviction

Rasheed Clanton of Buffalo has been sentenced  to six years in prison on drug convictions.

A jury found Clanton, 41, guilty of criminal possession of a controlled substance and three counts of criminally using drug paraphernalia  after a five day trial before Erie County Court Judge Kenneth F. Case.

Buffalo police, responding to a dogfighting incident at the defendant’s home at 191 Scoville in Buffalo in 2015, spotted a bag of heroin nearby. A search warrant at that address turned up the drug paraphernalia.

District Attorney John J. Flynn commended  Lt. James Panus and Detective John Garcia for their investigative work.

Assistant District Attorneys Justin T. Wallens and Noha A. Elnakib prosecuted the case.
