Appeals court upholds drug possession conviction

KINGSTON – The Appellate Division of State Supreme Court Third Department has affirmed the conviction of a man found guilty in Ulster County Court on drug charges.

In March 2015, Jason Berry pled guilty to the felony of criminal possession of a controlled substance.  As a second felony drug offender, he was sentenced to up to eight years in state prison followed by three years of post-release supervision.

On appeal, Berry claimed he was improperly sentenced as a predicate felony offender. That was rejected by the appellate court.
