Watertown woman sentenced to prison for Drug Court violation


A Watertown woman was sentenced Thursday in Jefferson County Court to 2 years in state prison after admitting that she violated terms of her Drug Court contract.

Latia M. Medina, 32, also was ordered to undergo two years of supervision upon her release from prison for violating conditions of the substance abuse rehabilitation program that is designed to serve as an alternative to incarceration.

She had been referred to the program in August 2011 for a third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance conviction, having admitted that she sold heroin in March 2011. Information about what led to the Drug Court violation was not available from the court.

In other court activity:

Dorian B. Ladd, 25, Clayton, successfully completed Drug Court and had his Aug. 16, 2012, guilty plea to felony driving while intoxicated vacated. He then pleaded guilty to DWI as a misdemeanor. He had been charged with DWI in February 2012 on Route 12 in the village of Clayton.

He subsequently was sentenced to three years’ probation, was fined $1,000 and was ordered to complete 30 hours of community service. He also had his driver’s license revoked and was ordered to install an ignition interlock device on any vehicle he owns or operates.

Rebecca S. Keegan, 28, Pierrepont Manor, was named in a grand jury indictment containing counts of third-degree grand larceny, fourth- and fifth-degree criminal possession of stolen property, first-degree identity theft, second-degree forgery and second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument.

It is alleged that from May to August 2012 she stole more than $3,000 from Beverly Wilson in the town of Ellisburg. She also has been charged with possessing a debit card stolen from Ms. Wilson and using it to obtain money or merchandise valued in excess of $2,000 and, in August 2012 in the town of Adams, filling out and signing a personal check belonging to Ms. Wilson without her permission.
