CANTON — A Bronx man was sentenced to prison Monday in St. Lawrence County Court for possessing a makeshift cutting device while an inmate in a Gouverneur prison. Andrew Roman, 23, an inmate at the Upstate Correctional Facility, Malone, was sentenced as a second-felony offender to 1 ½ to 3 years in prison for his Oct. 17 guilty plea to first-degree attempted promoting prison contraband, the reduced count of the indictment charging him with first-degree promoting prison contraband, in a plea deal with the district attorney’s office. On Jan 23, while he was an inmate at the Gouverneur Correctional Facility, Mr. Roman was in possession of a 2-inch-long cutting device made from metal that was melted into a pen cap.
