A 28-year-old Batavia man, who admitted to selling drugs last fall, is going to prison.
Timothy Lee, who also goes by the name “Cricket,” was sentenced in Genesee County Court this afternoon to 4 and half years behind bars.
Lee had pled guilty to selling crack cocaine to a member of the Genesee County Local Drug Task force.
Judge Robert Noonan told Lee this afternoon he was an “opportunist” and only very belatedly did he show an inclination to enter treatment.
“You don’t need treatment,” the Judge told Lee, “you need jail time, and that’s what you are going to get."
Lee’s fiancé, who is four-months pregnant, wept in court as the sentence was pronounced.
