Mulkey, 20, of Whitney Avenue, aggravated Niagara County Judge Matthew J. Murphy III by selling crack cocaine after his guilty plea in the shooting case.

"I tried to invest some confidence in him, putting him on interim probation, and he failed miserably," Murphy said.

Mulkey drove as Vincent K. Smith Jr. riddled a 22nd Street house with gunfire on Dec. 18, 2016. Smith, 22, is serving a seven-year sentence.

Mulkey pleaded guilty to attempted second-degree criminal possession of a weapon and attempted third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance. Murphy said Mulkey previously served time for drug and sexual misconduct misdemeanors.
