AUBURN — An Auburn woman received prison time Tuesday after she was sentenced for selling drugs in Cayuga County.
On March 9, Lafler pleaded guilty to two counts of third-degree criminal possession of narcotics and one count of third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance, both felonies, and second-degree criminal use of drug paraphernalia and endangering the welfare of a child, both misdemeanors, stemming from the two incidents that took place in 2017.
Tuesday, she was sentenced by Cayuga County Court Judge Mark Fandrich to three and a half years in prison, followed by three years of post release supervision, for the felony convictions and one year for the two misdemeanor convictions, each to run concurrently. She also must pay $400 in restitution.
Lafler was visibly shaking and crying as she apologized to the court for her crimes.
“I’m doing very well and I appreciate whatever you guys give me as my consequence because I deserve it,” she said. “I’ve been clean since I’ve been out, I’ve been going to mental health (counseling), I’ve been doing everything I should have been doing a long time ago and I just thank you for the opportunity and I am very sorry for everything I have done.”
Her defense attorney, Simon Moody, had asked the judge to grant Lafler a shock camp order. While Fandrich denied that request, he did say he would support Lafler taking part in any treatment programs available in prison.
“I believe you’re sincere Ms. Lafler in saying you have kept clean and are trying to get on the straight and narrow, but considering you sold drugs again in between the first and second indictment, I think you need to work on your sobriety,” Fandrich said.
