LOCKPORT – One woman successfully completed her court-supervised drug treatment program this week in Niagara County Judge Sara Sheldon Farkas’ courtroom, but another who failed in the program was sent to jail for a year.
Irene McCormick, 32, of Ferry Avenue, Niagara Falls, had pleaded guilty to attempted second-degree burglary for serving as a lookout during a Jan. 6, 2011, break-in at a home on Creek Road in Porter.
Her charge was reduced to second-degree criminal trespass and she was placed on three years’ probation, with time spent in treatment counting toward the probation term.
But Kelly L. Smith, 49, of Ridge Road, Hartland, was jailed after flunking out of the program to which she was admitted in July. She had pleaded guilty to attempted fifth-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance for selling her prescription painkillers twice in Lockport during March 2011.
