Geneva drug dealer arrested again while awaiting sentencing

A Geneva drug dealer jeopardized an eight-year sentencing after taking a plea deal to second degree criminal sale of a controlled substance, a class ‘A’ felony, after being re-arrested on assault charges.

Ontario County Assistant District Attorney Heather Hines confirmed that Miles Nelson, 25, was arrested on Saturday for second degree strangulation by City of Geneva Police and order held on ‘no bail’ given his criminal history.

During Miles guilty plea back in December Judge William Kocher issued enhancement warning, stating if he violated any of his probation terms while awaiting sentencing, he would be subjected to a potential max sentence by newly sworn in Judge Kitty Karle. Nelson now subjects himself to a potential max sentence of 15 years on the top count alone.
