Watertown man sentenced to prison for Drug Court violation


A Watertown man was sentenced Thursday in Jefferson County Court to four years in state prison after admitting he violated terms of his Drug Court contract.

Sean M. Miles, 36, also was ordered to undergo an additional two years of supervision upon his release for not following conditions of the substance abuse rehabilitation program that is designed to serve as an alternative to incarceration.

He was referred to the program in February 2012 after pleading guilty to third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance, having been accused of selling cocaine. Information about what led to the Drug Court violation was not available from the court.

In other court activity:

Corey J. King, 27, Oswego, pleaded guilty to felony driving while intoxicated and was referred to Drug Court. He was charged with DWI in May on Interstate 81 in the town of Pamelia.

If he completes Drug Court, the felony DWI conviction will be vacated and he then would be allowed to plead guilty to DWI as a misdemeanor. He then would be sentenced to three years’ probation, be fined $1,000, have his driver’s license revoked and be ordered to install an ignition interlock device on any vehicle he owns or operates.

If he is unsuccessful, the felony conviction will remain and he will be sentenced to one to three years in prison, be fined $3,500, have his driver’s license revoked and be subject to the interlock provision. His Drug Court supervision will be transferred to Oswego County.

Jasma M. Ryan, 27, Adams, successfully completed Drug Court and had a charge of third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance vacated and was allowed to plead guilty to the same count in the fifth degree. She was sentenced to five years’ probation. She had been referred to the program in June 2012 after pleading guilty to an allegation that she had sold cocaine.

Patrick G. Boyanski, 41, Chaumont, completed Drug Court and had a first-degree aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle conviction vacated, while a felony DWI conviction remained. He pleaded guilty to the charges in June 2012, admitting that he drove while intoxicated in February 2012 in the town of Brownville while his driver’s license had been suspended or revoked for a misdemeanor DWI conviction in 2009 in City Court. He was sentenced on the DWI charge to an unspecified amount of time served at the Metro-Jefferson Public Safety Building and a three-year conditional discharge, with orders to complete the Bridge program. He also was fined $1,000, had his driver’s license revoked and is subject to the interlock provision.
