A Niagara Falls man was ordered into a court-supervised drug treatment program Thursday after pleading guilty to driving under the influence of Suboxone while his daughter was a passenger in his car.
Corey N. Lasher, 35, of 80th Street, was arrested Aug. 30 in the City of Lockport, where police also charged him with possession of methamphetamine with the intent to sell.
Lasher pleaded guilty to two felonies: driving while impaired by drugs with a child passenger and attempted fifth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance.
Niagara County Judge Sara Sheldon said Lasher risks up to four years in prison if he can't break his drug addiction in the judicial diversion program.
Lasher forfeited $291 police seized from him when he was arrested.
