Glenfield woman sent to prison on drug sale charge


LOWVILLE — A Glenfield woman accused of selling morphine was sentenced Friday in Lewis County Court to state prison time.

Jody L. Wetmore, 38, was sentenced to three years in prison, three years of post-release parole supervision, $132 in restitution, $325 in court fees and a six-month suspension of driving privileges on a charge of third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance, to which she pleaded guilty Sept. 20.

Judge Daniel R. King recommended her for the prison system’s shock incarceration program. If deemed eligible by state Department of Corrections and Community Supervision officials, she would spend six months in a military-style treatment program and then serve the balance of her sentence on parole.
