ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — Timothy Granison, the estranged husband of former Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren, was sentenced to serve 32 months in prison Tuesday for selling drugs.
According to prosecutors, Granison, 43, was a member of a crack and cocaine drug ring that operated out of a home on Glenwood Avenue in the city. They say Granison got large quantities of cocaine from a high-level supplier, then sold the drugs to his own customers.
Prosecutors say Granison was caught in a May 19, 2021 telephone call talking about a cocaine re-supply happening sometime that afternoon. Investigators followed Granison until a second man, Dkeidron Dublin, got into his car, at which point the two were arrested.
Police found 31 grams of cocaine while searching Granison’s car and home.
Investigators also found a pistol and rifle in the home Granison shared with then-Mayor Lovely Warren. Their daughter was alone in the home at the time of the search.
Warren and Granison were each charged with criminal possession of a firearm and two counts of endangering the welfare of a child, along with two counts of failure to lock/secure firearms in a dwelling.
Those charges against Warren were resolved when she accepted a plea deal related to campaign finance violations. That plea deal forced Warren to resign, though she had already lost her primary election.
In July, Granison was found guilty on the state charge of child endangerment and two counts of failure to secure a firearm in a dwelling. He was acquitted on the criminal possession of a firearm charge and the other count of endangering the welfare of a child.
