NORWICH – Two men were sentenced in Chenango County Court on Friday, Feb. 21, 2014.
• Timothy R. Armstrong, 23, Endicott, pled guilty to the charge of criminal possession of a controlled substance in the third degree, and was sentenced to a split sentence of six months incarceration and five years years of probation supervision.
Armstrong had been incarcerated in the Chenango County Correction Facility for more than 270 days, and was given time served by the court and was released from the CCCF.
Chenango County District Attorney Joseph McBride asked the court to give Armstrong one year in state prison and one year of parole.
“There are two reasons, though, that suggests he is working to do the right thing. He was 20 at the time of his initial arrest, and it seems like he’s done a lot of things properly since that time,” said McBride.
“Despite that, what he had originally done was very, very bad,” said McBride. “Bringing drugs to this community is not going to be tolerated.”
