A Watertown man was sentenced Tuesday in Jefferson County Court to 3 years in state prison for possessing heroin in February.

Tommy L. Clark Jr., 32, also was ordered to undergo two additional years of supervision upon his release from prison after an Oct. 25 guilty plea to third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance. He admitted that he possessed heroin with the intent to sell the drug within the county Feb. 7.

Mr. Clark was sentenced as a second felony offender, having been sentenced in County Court in June 2011 to three years in prison for third-degree attempted criminal sale of a controlled substance, having admitted he tried to sell cocaine in Watertown.
