NYC man sentenced on drug sale charge
BALLSTON SPA A New York City man was sentenced to five years in prison on a drug charge during an appearance Monday in Saratoga County Court.
Levar N. Proctor, 36, was sentenced by County Court Judge Jerry J. Scarano after pleading guilty to attempted third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance.
Proctor was indicted in May on charges that he sold crack cocaine in Corinth and Moreau twice that month.
In addition to the prison sentence, Proctor is to have three years of post-release supervision. The sentence will be concurrent with a drug sentence imposed in Washington County, according to Saratoga County District Attorney James A. Murphy III.
Also Monday, Jacob A. Boldt, 24, of Purinton Road, Gansevoort, pleaded guilty to attempted third-degree burglary, third-degree assault and fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon.
Boldt was arrested in connection with an incident April 6 in Saratoga Springs. He will be sentenced Nov. 18.
Boldt was one of four accused of a what police said was a gang-style assault at a city apartment complex, in which the victim was kicked and punched, hit with a hammer, and threatened with stabbing. The victim was treated at Saratoga Hospital.
