LOCKPORT – A Niagara Falls man who had cocaine and Xanax in his car when police pulled it over Aug. 2 was recommended Monday for the state prison system’s boot camp-style “shock incarceration” program.

Niagara County Judge Sara Sheldon Farkas ordered that if Cornelius D. Porter, 20, of Fourth Street, isn’t admitted to the program or flunks out of it, he must serve a year in a regular cell plus one year of post-release supervision.

Porter pleaded guilty to fifth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance after his arrest on a warrant charging him with firing a gun at a passing car last June 27. Officers said they found a sawed-off rifle in the auto besides the drugs.
