---- — PLATTSBURGH — Five drug offenders were sentenced recently in Clinton County Court.

The sentences, handed down by Clinton County Judge Kevin Ryan, are:

Tara Beaudin, 31, of Plattsburgh pleaded guilty to third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and was sentenced to six months in jail and five years of probation.

Beaudin must pay $375 in surcharges, provide a sample of her DNA, pay the DNA collection fee and undergo substance-abuse evaluation and treatment. Her driver’s license was suspended.

Thomas A. Hendrie, 28, of Churubusco pleaded guilty to two counts of third-degree unlawful manufacture of methamphetamine and was sentenced to two years in state prison with one year of post-release supervision on both counts, to be served concurrently. Hendrie’s license will be suspended for six months, and he was ordered to pay the DNA sample fee and a $300 surcharge.

Hendrie was sent to Downstate Correctional Facility in Fishkill on May 30, according to state prison records.

Jesus Lozado, 57, of Plattsburgh pleaded guilty to third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and was sentenced, as a second felony offender, to seven years determinate incarceration with two years of post-release supervision. Lozado must pay $135 in restitution, $375 in surcharges, provide a DNA sample and pay the DNA sample fee. Lozado’s driver’s license was suspended.

He was arrested by Plattsburgh City Police on a Clinton County grand-jury indictment in December 2012 on two charges of third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and two counts of third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance.

Lozado has been incarcerated at Downstate Correctional Facility since May 16, according to prison records.

In December 2002, he had been released from prison and into the supervision of the New York State Division of Parole, records show. He was serving time then for third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance.

Kristy J. Manor, 34, of Plattsburgh, pleaded guilty to third-degree unlawful manufacture of methamphetamine and was sentenced to 90 days in jail and five years of probation; $375 in mandatory surcharges and DNA sample fee; and substance-abuse evaluation and treatment. Her driver’s license was suspended.

According to Plattsburgh City Court records, Manor was stopped by police while she was driving and was found to be in possession of an air pump with tubing, pseudoephedrine, cold packs and Coleman fuel, all ingredients used in making methamphetamine. Also found were a pill bottle that police saw in plain view while Manor was getting her license, according to the court records.

Four 5-mg oxycodone tablets were inside the unlabeled pill bottle, as well as 2.7 grams of marijuana and a glass pipe containing marijuana residue, the records say.

Manor’s original charges following the traffic stop were third-degree unlawful manufacturing of methamphetamine, a felony; seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, a misdemeanor; third-degree aggravated unlicensed operation of a vehicle, a misdemeanor; unlawful possession of marijuana, a violation; and inadequate plate lamps, an infraction.

Jesse J. Mashtare of Morrisonville pleaded guilty to two counts of third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance from two separate arrests and was sentenced to three years determinate jail time with two years of post-release supervision with shock-incarceration directive concurrent on each case.

After his arrest in a December drug sweep, Mashtare was charged with third- and fourth- and fifth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, all felonies, and seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, a misdemeanor. The drugs Mashtare was accused of possessing were oxycodone, Methadone and oxymorphone.

Mashtare’s age was not available, but he was 32 when he was arrested in December.

He was ordered to forfeit seized money, pay $750 in surcharges, provide a DNA sample and pay the sample fee. His driver’s license was revoked by the court.
