St. Lawrence County Court


CANTON — Joseph Sokolowski Jr., 40, of 19 Washington St., Massena, pleaded not guilty Dec. 2 in St. Lawrence County Court to felony second-degree criminal possession of marijuana.

It is alleged that on Sept. 12, he was in possession of approximately 8 pounds of marijuana in the town of Waddington.

Mr. Sokolowski was released under probation supervision pending further court proceedings.

In other court action, Cory A. Brown, 34, of 933 LeRay St., Watertown, pleaded not guilty to two counts of driving while intoxicated and aggravated DWI, all felonies.

It is alleged that Mr. Brown had a 0.24 percent blood alcohol content while driving Aug. 17 on Route 37 in the town of Waddington. A BAC of 0.08 percent or higher constitutes intoxication under state law. Aggravated DWI is charged when the BAC is 0.18 percent or higher.

Mr. Brown was convicted of misdemeanor DWI in Potsdam Town Court on Feb. 7, 2007, and again in Jefferson County Court on Feb. 16, 2012.

He was released under probation supervision pending further court proceedings.

Andrew J. Jacobs, 18, of 809 Main St., Ogdensburg, who pleaded guilty to a reduced count of felony fifth-degree attempted criminal sale of a controlled substance on Sept. 10, 2012, failed to appear for sentencing Dec. 2 and a warrant for his arrest has been issued.

Mr. Jacobs, who is accused of selling Ecstasy pills to an undercover police source in April 2011 in Ogdensburg, was sentenced to one year of interim probation. If he successfully completed probation, he would have been allowed to plead to a reduced misdemeanor count of seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, as per the plea bargain offered by the St. Lawrence County district attorney.

Mr. Jacobs originally was charged with two counts of felony fifth-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance.
