Gloversville man convicted in trial
A Fulton County jury has convicted a Gloversville man on one felony and one misdemeanor drug possession charge. Codie Hayward, 31, of 85 North St., faces up to 15 years in prison when sentenced at an undetermined date, District Attorney Chad Brown’s office said.
A search warrant was used earlier this year by the Glove Cities Emergency Response Team and Hayward was found in an apartment with drug paraphernalia, heroin, cocaine and pot.
The jury deliberated for about 2½ hours following testimony on Tuesday, prosecutors said. Eight witnesses were called.
Troy man admits to gun charge
ALBANY — A Troy man pleaded guilty Thursday to criminal possession of a weapon, a crime that could net him eight years in prison.
Albany County District Attorney David Soares said Raymeir Worthen, 25, entered his plea in Albany County Court.
Police say in May they made a traffic stop near Lark and State streets; Worthen was the passenger.
Police found a sawed-off 12-gauge shotgun with five rounds. The weapon was illegal for Worthen to have because of his 2013 felony conviction for attempted robbery, also in Albany.
In addition to eight years in state prison, Worthen could also face five years of post-release supervision when sentenced on Jan. 24.
