LOCKPORT – Filippo Inglima, the former Buffalo and Lewiston restaurant owner, was sentenced to a year in jail Wednesday for second-degree sexual abuse, but he wasn’t there to hear the word from Niagara County Judge Sara Sheldon Farkas.

That’s because Inglima, 46, of Wheatfield, surrendered last week to begin serving a sentence of 10 years and one month in federal prison for dealing cocaine and marijuana.

The sentence for molesting a 13-year-old girl in 2004 will run concurrently with his federal drug sentence. Also, although Inglima is supposed to become a registered sex offender, he is expected to be deported to Italy after he finishes his sentence.
