A Batavia resident accused of dealing drugs after police found 44 glassine bags of crack cocaine in his car and then later got into a fight in jail, will serve up to seven years in prison.
Milton H. Simmons III, 29, of 75 Franklin St., Batavia, was sentenced in Genesee County Court on Thursday.
Simmons was originally arrested in April when police responded to the parking lot of a West Main Street business for a report of a fight involving a knife. A subsequent search of Simmons' uncovered the crack cocaine.
As police transported Simmons from the courthouse to the jail, Simmons allegedly tried to escape and had to be restrained with the assistance of deputies at the court facility.
In July, Simmons punched another Genesee County Jail inmate in the face causing the inmate's denture plate to break.
The sentence handed down Thursday covers the multiple charges against Simmons, which included criminal possession of a controlled substance, 3rd, attempted escape and assault.
Judge Robert C. Noonan sentenced Simmons to three years in prison on one charge, and two to four years on another charge, with the sentences to be served consecutively.
not so fast he will serve "up to seven years in prison" raeding the srticle closely we see "Judge Robert C. Noonan sentenced Simmons to three years in prison on one charge, and two to four years on another charge, with the sentences to be served consecutively", which means he can be out in three or four years.
No, consecutive means back to back. So the term will be 3+4=7. You're thinking of concurrent sentence, a common error.
Oh shit! you are right! "my bad" sorry! I should pay more attention!
Gary, please refrain from using expletives. It jars my tender sensibilities. Some other options might include: Gosh dang!; Oh, drats; Dagnabbit; or my mother's ertswhile favorite "I swunny!"
Long ago, I asked her why she used such an odd expression and she explained that in her family, well before Ike was president, the expression "I swear" was cause for a mouth slapping. Thus, the phrase "I swunny" was used instead. That's Bible Belt logic for you.
Does it matter, he is off the street and off the street for quite awhile
I will try my damndest!
I always liked Bewitched "Oh, my stars" and then there the newest "shut the front door"
Correct Howard. Will serve at least 5 years and be eligible for parole for remaining 2 years. Wish they could just keep him instead of releasing him so, he can go back to doing it again.
