LOCKPORT – Wesley S. Wilson, whose seven alcohol-related driving arrests include three convictions for felony driving while intoxicated, was sentenced Thursday to one to three years in state prison for his latest offense.

Wilson, 57, of Cramer Street, North Tonawanda, pleaded guilty Nov. 12 to felony DWI, a charge lodged after officers found him May 17 at the wheel of a car stopped on a road in Pendleton and measured his blood alcohol content at 0.17 percent.

A probation officer recommended probation coupled with a six-month County Jail sentence for Wilson, who has been in rehabilitation since October.

“Not gonna happen,” Niagara County Judge Sara Sheldon Farkas told Wilson. “I’m sympathetic to your mindset that you’ve conquered it this time, but I can’t take a chance.”
