A Watertown man faces 3 years in state prison after admitting Friday in Jefferson County Court that he possessed heroin with the intent to sell the drug in February.

Tommy L. Clark Jr., 32, pleaded guilty to third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, admitting he had the drug within the county Feb. 7.

In addition to the prison term, he is expected to be ordered to undergo two additional years of supervision upon his release at sentencing Nov. 26. Mr. Clark was sentenced in County Court in June 2011 to three years in prison for a third-degree attempted criminal sale of a controlled substance conviction, having admitted he tried to sell cocaine in Watertown.

In other court activity:

Adam J. Shields, 29, of 217 E. Main St., Brownville, pleaded guilty to third-degree assault. He admitted that on March 21 in Brownville he caused multiple eye socket fractures to Robert G. Rapholz by punching him. He is expected to be sentenced Dec. 18 to no more than three years’ probation and be ordered to pay $15,794 in restitution.

Phillip A. Mono, 35, whose last known address was 309 Moulton St., was sentenced to an unspecified amount of time served at the Metro-Jefferson Public Safety Building and five years’ probation after a Sept. 23 guilty plea to third-degree attempted criminal sale of a controlled substance. He admitted that he tried to sell heroin May 15 within the county.

Mark S. Zando, 52, Watertown, was sentenced to three years’ probation after an Aug. 28 guilty plea to petit larceny. He admitted that in March 2012 in Watertown he took a credit card from Deborah A. Renda without her permission.

Richard R. Woodard, 31, Calcium, was arraigned on two counts each of third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance and third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance. The charges were contained in a grand jury indictment unsealed in court. It is alleged that he had and sold heroin within the county in mid-August and again in late August. He pleaded not guilty to the charges and was sent to the PSB on $75,000 bail.

Mr. Woodard is still facing an indictment handed up in early August containing four counts of third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance and five counts of third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance.

In that matter, it is alleged that he had and sold heroin on four dates within the county in mid- to late July and that he possessed the drug with the intent to sell it in late July in the town of Brownville.
