Cindy L. Ventresca, 42, of Woodlawn Avenue, admitted to attempted fourth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and agreed to forfeit $508 in U.S. currency and $60 Canadian that police seized when they stopped a car in which she was a passenger.

She is scheduled for sentencing April 4 by County Judge Sara Sheldon Farkas, and is to receive no more than a year in jail.
