A Watertown woman faces up to seven years in state prison after admitting Tuesday in Jefferson County Court that she violated her Drug Court contract by absconding from the court’s supervision.

Denise M. Bradley, 42, whose last known address was 1014 Boyd St., pleaded guilty to second-degree bail jumping and admitted violating the substance abuse rehabilitation program that is designed to serve as an alternative to incarceration by failing to show up for mandated Drug Court appearances since May 2011 and by relocating for a period to Pennsylvania.

She was referred to the program in April 2011 after pleading guilty to third-degree attempted criminal possession of a controlled substance and first-degree falsifying business records. She admitted that she forged a prescription and presented it to a Watertown pharmacy in an attempt to obtain a controlled substance to which she was not entitled.

At the time she entered the program, it was agreed that if she was unsuccessful in it, she faced a two- to four-year state prison sentence, which is now expected to be her sentence. She also is expected to be sentenced Nov. 8 to a consecutive term of 1 to 3 years in prison.

In other court activity:

He is expected to be sentenced Nov. 22 to 10 years’ probation and be required to register with the state as a sex offender.

Wesley B. Butler, 20, whose last known address was 1708 Ohio St., Apt. 32, pleaded guilty to third-degree attempted criminal sale of a controlled substance.

He is expected to be sentenced Nov. 1 to six months in the Metro-Jefferson Public Safety Building, followed by five years’ probation.

He admitted violating probation by failing to follow through with substance abuse counseling and by continuing to use marijuana while under supervision.
