LOCKPORT – A North Tonawanda man pleaded guilty to his third felony driving while intoxicated charge in the past 20 years Tuesday, even though Niagara County Judge Sara Sheldon Farkas warned him that she is likely to send him to state prison.

Wesley S. Wilson, 57, of Cramer Street, is to be sentenced Jan. 23 and could spend as long as four years behind bars. He was arrested May 19 in Pendleton after police found him at the wheel of a vehicle stopped on a highway, and measured his blood alcohol content at .17 percent, more than twice the legal threshold for intoxication.
