LOCKPORT – A North Tonawanda man pleaded guilty Wednesday to forging prescriptions and attempting to get them filled Jan. 28 at a pharmacy in North Tonawanda.

Zachary S. Gravell, 25, of Oliver Street, admitted to second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument and was assigned to the judicial diversion program of court-supervised drug treatment by State Supreme Court Justice Richard C. Kloch Sr.

Gravell faces up to seven years in prison if he washes out of the treatment program. He was charged with stealing a prescription pad from a doctor and trying to obtain three prescriptions in the Wellness Park Pharmacy on River Road.
