Auburn man gets prison time for drug trafficking, possessing weapon

An Auburn man charged with drug trafficking felonies was sentenced to six years in prison in Cayuga County Criminal Court Tuesday morning.

Johnnie Sease Jr., of 2 Capitol St., was arrested in June after law enforcement executed a search warrant of his home. Drugs, weapons, cash and other items were uncovered by the Finger Lakes Drug Task Force.

Sease, 58, pleaded guilty to three felonies in December to satisfy his original 18-charge indictment. He pleaded guilty to two class B felonies of third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance and third-degree criminal possession of a narcotic drug as well as third-degree criminal possession of a weapon, a class D felony.

At the time, Sease admitted to both possessing about 15 grams of crack cocaine and selling cocaine to another individual. He also admitted to possessing a Taurus Judge revolver while committing the drug trafficking felonies.

“I would like to express remorse,” Sease said in court Tuesday. “I take full responsibility for my actions and I hope God will see me through these trying times.”
