BUFFALO, N.Y. -- A Buffalo man has been sentenced to three years behind bars and two years post release supervision for selling a fentanyl and cocaine mix, says the Erie County District Attorney's Office.
Phillip Jackson, 24, pleaded guilty in May to third-degree Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance, and violating his probation terms.
Jackson was sentenced in February to five years probation after he was convicted of fifth-degree Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance.
A condition of that probation was that he not be arrested. Less than a week later, the Buffalo Police Department Narcotics Unit searched Jackson's apartment and recovered 87 glassine envelopes with fentanyl and cocaine, packaged to sell.
State Supreme Court Justice M. William Boller sentenced Jackson Friday afternoon. The judge also recommended Jackson for shock incarceration.
