Cortland Man Sentenced to Spend 1 1/2 in Prison For Selling Fake Cocaine
Friday, September 27, 2013
A Cortland man was sentenced to a year and a half in prison Thursday for selling crushed up pills that the buyer though was cocaine.
Last month Jason Hyde pled guilty to a felony count of attempted criminal sale of a controlled substance.
Back in June Hyde, who was already on Parole for a 2009 conviction of criminal possession of a controlled substance; met up with an undercover informant at the Daily Grind Store on Main Street in Cortland and sold him an undisclosed quantity of a white powdery substance.
Hyde admitted that he crushed up undisclosed pills and sold them to what turned out to be an undercover informant working for the County Drug Task force.
Hyde must also repay $100 in drug buy money.
