NORWICH – An Afton man who pleaded guilty to allowing cocaine to be sold out of his home said he is “a good guy” and “doesn't think he deserves jail.” Judge Frank B. Revoir disagreed, telling the man “you ain't a good guy,” and sentenced him to nine months incarceration at the county jail.
On March 23, Allan G. Shepard pleaded guilty to the class E felony of criminal nuisance in the first degree.
It is alleged during the months of March and April of 2014 he knowingly and unlawfully allowed others to gather at his Afton residence to sell cocaine and that he benefited from the transactions by receiving cocaine for his personal use.
“They were friends that came to my house and were doing drugs,” said Shepard. “I did cocaine with them.”
On April 17, Shepard reappeared in Chenango County Court to be sentenced.
“You allowed drugs to be sold out of your home,” said District Attorney Joseph A. McBride. “Drugs are killing the young people in our community, and it's affecting everyone.”
