Timothy Boulton, a 32-year-old resident of Binghamton, has been sentenced to 5 1/2 years in New York State Prison for Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance in the Fourth Degree. The sentencing was announced by Broome County District Attorney F. Paul Battisti.

The case against Boulton dates back to November 9, 2023, when a routine traffic stop by the Binghamton Police Department Community Response Team led to the discovery of over a half-ounce of methamphetamine in his possession. Additionally, Boulton was found to have $5,545 in cash at the time of his arrest, further implicating him in illegal drug activities.

As a second felony offender, Boulton's sentencing to 5 1/2 years in prison, followed by 3 years of post-release supervision, serves as a reminder of the legal repercussions that individuals involved in the drug trade may face. District Attorney Battisti emphasized the commitment of his office to pursuing justice and protecting the community from the harmful effects of illegal drugs.
