LOCKPORT – Vintaun D. Weathers, who was kicked out of the judicial diversion program of court-supervised drug treatment in May because of a cocaine possession arrest, pleaded guilty to his second drug felony Thursday in State Supreme Court.

Weather, 28, of Linwood Avenue, Niagara Falls, admitted to fifth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance for the March 23 cocaine arrest. His ouster from the treatment program means he also will be sentenced for his April 2012 guilty plea to third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance for selling cocaine Aug. 18, 2011, in the Town of Niagara.

Justice Richard C. Kloch Sr. promised concurrent sentencing, limiting Weathers’ prison time to a maximum of nine years when he returns to court Oct. 31.
