MISS: To a convict who failed to take advantage of a break.
An Onondaga County man who was sentenced to probation for selling drugs in Cayuga County was sentenced again this week to state prison for violating the terms of that probation.
The odd thing is that the probation began on May 31 and the violation occurred the very next day, when the man went to see an ex-girlfriend and ended up being arrested for harassment. He will now have a year in state prison to work on his decision-making abilities.
HIT: To yet another accolade for an Auburn business.
Prison City Pub & Brewery's Mass Riot IPA was awarded first place in a taste-test contest that included 247 different brews. The distinction was revealed by Paste Magazine in a story about American India pale ales.
