BUFFALO, N.Y.-- A Niagara Falls man was sentenced in court Friday afternoon for drug possession.

U.S. Attorney William Hochul announced today that 32-year-old Octavius Miller was sentenced to seven years in prison and three years of supervised release for his conviction of Possession with Intent to Distribute Cocaine Base (crack).

Attorneys say during the execution of a search warrant in December 2010, law enforcement officers found Miller to be in possession of approximately 123 grams of cocaine base, or crack, in his residence on Cleveland Avenue.

Miller admitted during his plea proceedings that he possessed the crack with the intent to sell it and that he had done so on numerous occasions before and after these drugs were seized.
