LOCKPORT – A North Tonawanda woman admitted in State Supreme Court Friday that she sold the painkiller oxymorphone to a police informant last year.

Susan L. Fogarty, 42, of Oliver Street, pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of attempted third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance. Justice Richard C. Kloch Sr. admitted her to the judicial diversion program of court-supervised drug treatment.

If Fogarty succeeds in treatment, her charge will be reduced to a misdemeanor with a probation sentence. But if she fails in the program, she faces a state prison sentence of up to 5 1/2 years for the March 22, 2012, drug deal in North Tonawanda.
