Here are the outcomes:

Robert Mulverhill Jr., 27, of Milwaukee Street, Malone: Sentenced to three years in state prison for second-degree strangulation, stemming from an incident July 1. He was also ordered to serve three years of post-release supervision and pay $516 in restitution. Mulverhill was indicted by a grand jury on charges of second-degree robbery, third-degree assault, second-degree strangulation and fourth-degree criminal mischief.

Bryant Watson, 21, an inmate at Great Meadow Correctional Facility: Sentenced to 1½ to three years in state prison for first-degree attempted promotion of prison contraband, stemming from an incident Oct. 8, 2012, at Bare Hill Correctional Facility. The term will run consecutive to the prison time he is now serving.

Kagen Smith, 22, of Constable: Sentenced to one to three years in state prison for violating the terms of his court-ordered probation following a conviction for third-degree attempted burglary.

Shawn Dustin, 24, of Webster Street, Malone: Sentenced to two years in state prison with three years of post-release supervision for third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, stemming from an incident July 30, 2012. He was also ordered to pay a $2,500 fine and $275 in restitution. The charge is to run concurrent to two other convictions for violating the terms of court-ordered probation, stemming from a third-degree burglary charge and a charge of fifth-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance, both committed on March 19, 2012. Dustin was sentenced to 21/3 to seven years in prison on the burglary count and two years in prison, plus three years of post-release supervision for the drug count.

An 18-year-old youthful offender from Saranac Lake: Sentenced to six months in County Jail and five years of probation for third-degree attempted burglary, stemming from an incident March 18. The teen, who pleaded guilty to Superior Court Information rather than a formal grand-jury indictment, was also ordered to pay $444 in restitution.
