ALBION – An Albion man was sentenced to 1 ½ years in state prison today by Orleans County Court Judge Sanford Church.

Richard Meise, 36, was arrested on June 20 along with his wife Linda for allegedly making and possessing methamphetamine at Beechwood Boulevard, Oak Orchard Estates.

Her husband is a second-felony offender. He pleaded guilty to attempted unlawful manufacture of methamphetamine in the third degree. His sentence also includes two years of post-release supervision.

Public Defender Joanne Best said Mr. Meise has been drug-free since his arrest.

Judge Church said Meise has an extensive criminal and substance abuse history. The judge urged Meise to take a new path in his life.

“I hope you get the help you need and it lasts,” he said.

Riley was arraigned on three counts each of criminal sale and criminal possession of a controlled substance in the third degree. He also has been charged with criminally using drug paraphernalia in the second degree.

Riley is currently on parole with the NYS Department of Corrections and Community Supervision. His charges are no longer a “bailable offense” but his attorney requested some bail, even $1.
