Miles Nelson, 26, was looking at a very favorable deal of eight years in prison for Class A2 felony drug sales — but while out on bail awaiting sentencing Miles continued to sell drugs and got into a physical altercation, earning three additional years.
CANANDAIGUA — A Geneva drug dealer, who was out on bail awaiting an eight-year sentence for selling cocaine, picked up three more years for not being able to stay out of trouble.
Miles Nelson, 26, will now serve 11 years in state prison for selling cocaine. In November he and his attorney, Jason Housel, had arrangements for an eight-year deal. However, Miles was charged with a new cocaine sales charge as well as criminal obstruction of breathing or blood circulation after he got into a physical altercation.
The new deal is a global resolution to his other pending criminal matters.
In addition, Nelson will also serve five years of post-release supervision upon his release. Nelson will be 37 when he gets out of state prison.
According to testimony back in November, Nelson admitted to selling cocaine three times in Canandaigua, including Dec. 14, 2017, when he sold 28.3 grams. Nelson was facing up to 20 years in prison.
The case was prosecuted by Ontario County Assistant District Attorney Heather Hines.
