In Allegany County court Friday morning, a Belfast man was sent to state prison. Christopher J. Logue, 40, of Shaller Street in Belfast was sentenced to a state prison term of three years. Judge Thomas Brown also ordered Logue to serve 2 1/2 years of post-release supervision. Additionally, Logue was ordered to forfeit $1,055 he possessed at the time of his arrest.
