LOCKPORT – Niagara County Judge Sara Sheldon Farkas ordered drug treatment in different locations for two Niagara Falls men in separate cocaine cases Friday.
Antonio M. Mozell, 28, of Willow Avenue, was sent to the state prison system’s secure drug treatment facility, from which he will be paroled in 90 days if he succeeds in its program. If not, he was serve 18 months in a regular cell.
He had pleaded guilty to fifth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance for having three-tenths of an ounce of cocaine when his probation officer visited his home April 4, 2013.
Milton L. Daniels, 26, of Weston Avenue, was assigned to local treatment in the judicial diversion program, supervised by Falls City Judge Mark A. Violante.
Daniels sold crack cocaine Oct. 23 to a police informant in the Falls. Daniels faces up to nine years in prison if he fails in treatment, but success means his charge will be reduced to a misdemeanor and he will not go to jail.
