Another Drug Dealer Sentenced In Steuben County

In Steuben County Court on Mon­day, one of the four peo­ple who were arrested in a metham­phet­a­mine bust near Hamil­ton in April of 2014 was sen­tenced. 36-year-old Leslie Swindell pled guilty last Feb­ru­ary to aid­ing in deal­ing metham­phet­a­mine, a felony. Swindell learned yes­ter­day that he will have to serve 8 years behind bars of a 12 year sen­tence, and four years of pro­ba­tion. Swindell will also have to pay resti­tu­tion, but that fig­ure will be cal­cu­lated later. He also, if he wants to play by the rules of a plea deal any­way, will have to tes­tify against a co-defendant. Pros­e­cu­tors dis­missed four other charges in the plea agree­ment, and Swindell was also given credit for 528 days that he has already been locked up.
