A Branchport-area man who dumped a drug overdose victim outside and drove away will serve a prison sentence.
Patrick Brown, 40, of Jerusalem, was sentenced Tuesday in Yates County Court to 1½ to 3 years in prison, according to the Finger Lakes Times.
Part of his sentence will include time spent at the Willard Drug Treatment Center.
Brown was arrested last year after police saw him flee from a location where an unconscious male had been left. That male overdosed, and when Brown was taken into custody – a number of drugs and other items were recovered.
The Times reports that Judge Jason Cook said Brown’s lengthy criminal history dates back to 1991. He has been in prison and jail before.
