A Watertown man was sentenced Thursday in Jefferson County Court to up to seven years in state prison after admitting he violated terms of Drug Court.
Brandon J. Uscio, 25, had been referred to the substance abuse rehabilitation program designed to serve as an alternative to incarceration. He pleaded guilty Nov. 23 to third-degree burglary, third-degree grand larceny and fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property as a result of three incidents. Information about what led to his violating the program was not available from the court.
He was charged with burglary, accused of breaking into a house June 28, 2011, on Nellis Road in the town of Pamelia. He was charged in August 2011 with grand larceny for allegedly stealing copper and aluminum valued at more than $1,000 from a business on Route 12 in Pamelia. Additionally, he was charged with possession of stolen property that had been taken from a construction site on Bradley Street.
He was sentenced Thursday on the burglary conviction to 3½ to 7 years in prison. He was also sentenced to a concurrent 2- to 4-year term for the grand larceny conviction and 11⁄3 to 3 years for the possession of stolen property conviction.
He was additionally ordered to pay $9,240 in restitution in the form of a civil judgment in the burglary matter and $1,300, also as a civil judgment, in the stolen property matter.
