A Philadelphia, Pa., man was sentenced Tuesday in Jefferson County Court to up to six years in state prison for trying to sell drugs in Watertown.

Antoine Gary, 40, was sentenced to six years in prison, followed by three years of additional supervision upon his release, after pleading guilty Dec. 18 to third-degree attempted criminal sale of a controlled substance. He had been charged in a grand jury indictment handed up in October with selling cocaine in July.

Mr. Gary was sentenced as a second felony offender, having been convicted in County Court in June 2011 of fifth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance. After violating probation in that matter, he was resentenced in August 2012 to a year in prison, being released in March. Judge Kim H. Martusewicz mandated that he serve his latest sentence in the prison system’s Willard Drug Treatment Program. If he completes the 90-day program, he serves the remainder of his sentence under parole supervision.
