041814 - Kris M Wynn - THUMBPlattsburgh, N.Y.- Clinton County District Attorney Andrew J. Wylie announced today that the Hon. Patrick R. McGill sentenced Kris M. Wynn (DOB: 6/16/82) of Schenectady, to sixteen years in prison on Thursday for his convictions for trafficking and selling cocaine and heroin in the City of Plattsburgh.
In February, a Clinton County jury deliberated for approximatley 70 minutes before convicting Wynn of selling cocaine on January 9, 2013 and heroin on January 10, 2013. The jury also convicted Wynn for possessing 109 bags of heroin on his person when he was pulled over by New York State Troopers, working in conjuction with the Adirondack Drug Task Force, on January 29, 2013 while he was en route to Plattsburgh from Schenectady.
“You offer nothing to society that is of value,” Judge McGill told Wynn before pronouncing the sentence. “You sell drugs which detoriate soceity.”
Wynn was sentenced to eight years incarceration for his convictions of Criminal Sale of a Controlled Substance in the Third Degree and Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance in the Third Degree from the sale of cocaine and eight years incarceration for his convictions of Criminal Sale of a Controlled Substance in the Third Degree and Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance in the Third Degree related to the sale of heroin, to run consecutively. He was additionally sentenced to eight years incarceration for his conviction for Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance in the Third Degree for possession of the 109 bags of heroin, to run concurrently.
“You’re only goal is to make money the easiest way possible and that’s selling drugs. You’re not a very good drug salesman because you keep getting caught. In fact, you’re lousy at it,” Judge McGill continued.
Wynn has previously served a state prison bid for sales of narcotics. In 2004, he was sentenced to 2-6 years for Criminal Sale of a Controlled Substance in the Fifth Degree in Albany County and a concurrent 3-9 years for Attempted Criminal Sale of a Controlled Substance in the Third Degree in Saratoga County.
“This is another individual drawn to this community from a larger metropolitan area because there’s more money to be made selling drugs here than in Albany,” stated Assistant District Attorney Douglas Collyer, who prosecuted the case. “The Adirondack Drug Task Force did a great job identifying, tracking and building a case against Mr. Wynn, just as they will for other individuals who make the same mistake.”
Wynn will have to serve four years on parole once released. He was also ordered to pay $375 in mandatory surcharges and $500 in restitution for the money used to purchase the narcotics from him. Wynn will have to provide a DNA sample and his driver’s license was suspended pursuant to law.
Wynn faced a minimum of two years and a maximum of thirty-six years in prison on all of the charges. He had previously turned down three separate plea offers of seven, eight and eight and one half years before proceeding to trial. He was remanded to begin serving his sentence following the fifteen minute long proceeding. Johnson was represented by attorney Allan Cruikshank.
