Ithaca man who sold cocaine in Geneva going to prison

Prosecutors in Ontario County say the Ithaca man who sold a large quantity of cocaine in Geneva will go to prison.

District Attorney Jim Ritts told the Finger Lakes Times that Abdul Holmes pleaded guilty on Wednesday to three counts of second-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance.

The charges are Class A felonies.

The 39-year-old was arrested in March following an investigation and traffic stop in the city. The investigation into the sale of cocaine had been ongoing for several months at the time.
