ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - A former Saratoga County sheriff’s deputy has been sentenced to five years in federal prison for taking a payment to drive a drug dealer from Albany to Warren County to distribute cocaine.

Charles E. Fuller of Corinth was arrested in an FBI sting last February. He was charged with trying to help distribute more than 500 grams of cocaine.

The 24-year veteran sheriff’s deputy immediately began his sentence on Thursday.

Defense attorney Stephen Coffey had characterized Fuller’s crime as being spurred by debts from his gambling and use of alcohol. He said when Fuller was approached by the drug mule for a ride, he saw an opportunity to repay money he had borrowed.
