Saugerties man going to prison for weapon possession


KINGSTON – A Saugerties man was sentenced in Ulster County Court to 13 years in state prison on his conviction for criminal possession of a weapon and five years in prison for criminal possession of a controlled substance.

Both sentences for Willie Rodriguez will run concurrently.

The convictions arose from December 22, 2017 when he was arrested for possession of a loaded firearm that had been stolen from a vehicle in Saugerties. At the time of his arrest, he had heroin in his possession.

Rodriguez’s codefendants, Sklar Eichert and Gina Julian, both previously pled guilty and were sentenced to state prison.
