ALBION – A Holley man was sentenced to 2 years in state prison in Orleans County Court on Monday.

Scott E. Davis, 28, of Brockville Road was arrested on July 28 following an investigation into the sale and distribution of cocaine in Orleans County.

Davis was sentenced for criminal possession of a controlled substance in the fifth degree. The charge carries a maximum of 2 ½ years in state prison.

Judge James Punch sentenced Davis to 2 years, plus one year of post-release supervision.

In another case on Monday, a Rochester man pleaded guilty to attempted criminal possession of a controlled substance in the third degree.

Steven C. Jones, 47, was arrested in November, the first person to be charged in Orleans County for selling medical marijuana. Jones was allegedly selling marijuana in both liquid and pill form, as well as prescription painkillers.

He faced an 18-count indictment and has been in jail on $100,000 bail.

Jones will be sentenced to up to 4 years in prison, and possibly 2 years of post-release supervision, on June 5.
