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

Calvin S. Carver, 27, of Salt Works Road in Medina was arrested on July 6 after an investigation into the sale and distribution of crack cocaine in Medina.

Carver, a second felony offender, was sentenced for criminal possession of a controlled substance. In addition to four years in prison, Carver will have three years of post-release supervision, and must pay a $325 court surcharge and $50 DNA fee.

County Court Judge James Punch said Carver has a history of dealing drugs.

In other cases:

Angela Tuitt, 20, from Queens was sentenced to an additional 1 ½ to 3 years in state prison for attempted promoting of prison contraband in the first degree.

Tuitt is an inmate at Albion Correctional Facility. She admitted to having a lock in a sock with the intent to use it as a weapon to protect herself on May 7, 2015. Because she is a second felony offender, Punch said he had to sentence her to additional time in prison.

• Two teen-agers who were arrested at a motel on Oct. 6 after being found with cocaine are now only facing charges of endangering the welfare of a child.

Punch said a search warrant wasn’t properly executed in the case and that evidence can’t be used.

“Anything observed or confiscated in the warrants will be suppressed,” Punch said.

Andrew L. Coley, 19, of Albion and a 17-year-old girl from Webster faced multiple drug counts that have been effectively dismissed.

After entry was made into the motel room, police discovered a runaway juvenile inside the room from Parsons Children and Family Center in Albany. Coley and the girl from Webster also were allegedly in the room. The girl is likely to be given youthful offender status so her name shouldn’t be published.

• In a court appearance on Friday, a Rochester man pled guilty to selling crack and heroin.

Trevis D. Baker, 38, of Chili Avenue pleaded guilty to attempted third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance. He will face a maximum of six years in prison when he is sentenced on May 15.

Baker also is facing federal drug and weapons that will be prosecuted in U.S. District Court.

Baker allegedly sold heroin and cocaine to an informant from Orleans County between March 15 to March 24. He was arrested March 30 after an investigation into heroin, crack cocaine and cocaine sales in Orleans County.

The Major Felony Crime Task Force, along with Rochester and Albion police, raided Baker’s house and seized more than three ounces of cocaine, more than an ounce of crack, five bundles of heroin, a loaded pistol, more than $8,000 cash and drug paraphernalia.
