Fulton County Court Judge Polly A. Hoye accepted pleas in three drug cases Friday, sentencing one man to time served and postponing sentencing in the others.

Ronald Washington, 25, of North Street, pleaded guilty to third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance.

Under terms of his plea agreement, he will serve 31⁄2 years in prison and three years of post-release supervision.

He will be sentenced as a second felony offender.

He was arrested April 21 by Gloversville Police on charges of third-degree sale and possession of crack cocaine and possession of marijuana. Police said Washington sold crack to an informant on Feb. 18.

In other cases:

u Jessica Dence, 26, who resided with Washington and was arrested the same day, pleaded guilty to first-degree criminal nuisance, a charge that accuses a person of maintaining a residence for the purpose of drug activity.

Her plea bargain specifies a jail sentence of one year. She was arrested on charges of possession of crack cocaine and marijuana and endangering the welfare of a child.

u Shane A. St. Louis, 56, of Washington Street, Gloversville, pleaded guilty to misdemeanor criminal possession of a controlled substance and was immediately sentenced to time already served.

St. Louis was arrested Sept. 10 on single counts of third-degree criminal sale and criminal possession of a controlled substance and seventh-degree possession.

Police said he sold cocaine to an informant July 23 in Gloversville.

u In a fourth case Friday, Ford W. Wolfe Jr., 37, of County Highway 443, Schoharie, pleaded guilty to first-degree criminal contempt, admitting he had contact with an individual protected by a court order.

The incident occurred in February in Gloversville. He was arrested March 1 on charges of first-degree criminal contempt and second-degree aggravated harassment.

Under terms of his plea bargain, he will serve six months in jail and five years’ probation.
