LOCKPORT – Two former residents of Lincoln Place in the Town of Lockport, already serving state prison time for other crimes, have pleaded guilty in Niagara County Court to other drug felonies, committed before their incarceration.

Thursday, Jeanine L. Burton, 24, pleaded guilty to fifth-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance for selling crack cocaine to a police informant in a parked car on Waterman Street in the City of Lockport June 21, 2013. At the time, she was out on parole from an 18-month prison term for another drug deal. She’s back behind bars now as a parole violator.

County Judge Matthew J. Murphy III agreed to give Burton no more than 2½ years in prison for that, but made no commitment as to whether he will order it served simultaneously with or after Burton’s current sentence, which expires in March.

Wednesday, Justin J. Snead, 23, admitted to attempted third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance for selling crack cocaine to a police informant Oct. 5 and 15, 2012.

Snead is serving four years in prison for the near-fatal stabbing of Edward Wright of Lockport July 5, 2013, in the parking lot of a Lincoln Avenue apartment complex. Wright was stabbed nine times in the back. County Judge Sara Sheldon Farkas will sentence him Oct. 29 to a concurrent sentence of up to 5½ years.
